Sen. Thune: Trump Won't Likely Be Impeached; Time to Wind Down Probe

President Donald Trump won't likely be impeached, Sen. John Thune said Thursday, but he does think that it's in both the interest of the president and the American people that the facts of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election are made public and conclusions are finally reached.

"They've investigated everything and interviewed everybody and have had months and months of this now to do this, and I think it's time for them to begin to start winding this down," the South Dakota Republican told Fox News' "Happening Now."

"I hope that happens sooner rather than later, because I don't think it's in anybody's best interest to drag these sorts of things out forever and for them to become an unending sort of campaign."

Meanwhile, Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has argued that as president, Trump can't be indicted, while in other opinions, he could, and Thune said he guesses the matter "depends on which lawyer you talk to."

"I think that issue will get sorted out by lawyers," said Thune. "The broader point is this needs to be concluded in a timely way. I do think that it has drug on for a long period of time. We want to make sure the Mueller investigation is thorough."

However, he said the American people are going to tire of the continued investigation, and "many of them have put it in their rearview mirrors.
