Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the Ukraine controversy is the "canary in the coal mine" of what President Donald Trump and his allies have been up to.

Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, during an appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show," also stressed how important the 2020 elections were in order to properly deal with the "constitutional crisis."

"We have got to be able to do two things as Democrats," she told Maddow. "We have to be able to have a deliberative, serious pursuit of the impeachment inquiry. We have to continue to make our case about all of the bills that the House Democrats have passed that have gone to the Senate to die and, you know, (Senate Majority Leader) Mitch McConnell's graveyard. 

"We have to do both of those things simultaneously. But if there were to be a change in administration and certainly a change in attorney general – because what we're seeing with this particular attorney general is full throated support of every conspiracy theory that could possibly hurt Democrats and help this president, which is deeply disturbing to those of us who remember attorney generals quitting over a president trying to order them to deep six evidence back in the Nixon administration. 

"So, I think that there will be consequences, depending upon, you know, how this impeachment inquiry plays out. And let's not forget that the evidence right now is very damning. The American public really grasps that. This is an abuse of power that has broken through." 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced an impeachment inquiry against Trump following the release of a phone call transcript that showed Trump pressured Ukraine's president to investigate Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
