Democratic presidential candidates in the United States spoke in support of impeachment of incumbent Republican President Donald Trump during the fifth televised debate on Friday.
“I clearly stated that these are actions that should be punished by impeachment. I just think that our job as a jury is to consider each episode and make a decision”, – said Minnesota Senator Amy Klobushar.
She accused Trump of constantly putting his personal and political interests over the interests of the country.
Bernie Sanders also supported this idea, calling Trump a pathological liar and “the most corrupt president in modern American history”.
