The Democrat Senate candidate for Texas reiterated his point that he’d like to see President Donald Trump booted from the White House.

Beto O’Rourke restated on Thursday his support for the president’s impeachment, saying, “there is enough there.”

O’Rourke has previously told The Dallas News that he would vote to impeach Trump if he were elected.

“Impeachment, much like an indictment, shows that there is enough there for the case to proceed and at this point there is certainly enough there for the case to proceed.”

When asked if he has changed his mind, he said, “I haven’t.”

“There may be an open question as to whether the president, then the candidate, sought to collude with the Russian government in 2016,” O’Rourke said, calling the Trump-Putin summit a “collusion in action.”

“When [in] broad daylight, on Twitter, he asked his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, to end the Russia investigation, I would say that’s obstruction in action,” O’Rourke continued. “The best course to get there so that every member has all the facts and that they are compelling enough to do the right thing is to allow the full Independence and integrity of the Bob Mueller investigation.”

When asked if he would try impeaching Trump without any conclusions, O’Rourke said, “There is enough there.”

“I would liken impeachment to an indictment. There is enough there to proceed with the trial for a full vetting of the facts and to make the best informed decision in the interests of this country and our future.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat himself, recently spoke out against some Democrats’ call for Trump’s impeachment, saying, “I hope they don’t.”

He also added that they should wait until the investigation is finished on whether or not there were incidents of collusion between the president and Russia.

“I think we should focus on all the terrible things that are happening now in terms of interest of the middle-class people and working class people,” Biden told CBS News. “There are so many things to attend to immediately. Let’s see where the investigation takes us.”

If he thinks it could be done that’s called wishful thinking! On the other hand this could lead for him not to be winning the election for Governor !

Beatoff O’Dork is a cross between a bean poll and Frankenstein’s monster. Hideous thing.

He’s a spoiled, prep-school elitist who’s daddy got him off criminal charges more than once. He’s as much a fake and panderer with his Hispanic nickname “Beto” as Liz Warren, Shaun King, or Rachel Dolezal.

The Dems who are ignoring the “leadership” call to tone down the impeachment rhetoric are the ones who are “Democratic Socialists”. Old school Dems are just now starting to understand the problems THEY’VE started.

So am I. I hope the liberals know, if they do what they plan on doing, ie impeachment, repealing the tax law, they will probably send the stock market and the entire economy into a tail spin. We need a red wave. MAGA
