Democrat Rep: House Will Impeach Trump Again if He Wins in 2020
Democratic Rep. Karen Bass claims president is 'owned 100 percent by the Russians'
Democrat Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) has warned that the Democratic House will push to impeach President Donald Trump again if he wins the 2020 election.
Bass was asked by TMZ if she would be in favor of impeaching President Trump again if Democrats take control of the Senate.
Not only did she vow to support introducing the same two articles of impeachment Democrats introduced Tuesday, but Bass claimed that Trump's victory in 2020 would provide more evidence to impeach him.
“Yes, but I don’t think it would be exactly the same … because even though we are impeaching him now there are still a number of court cases, there’s a ton of information that could come forward,” Bass said in the interview.
"For example, we could get his bank records and find out that he’s owned 100 percent by the Russians."

“So you are absolutely right in your scenario, but the only thing I would say that is slightly different is that it might not be the same articles of impeachment because the odds are we have a ton more information and then the odds of that, sadly enough is that he probably has more examples of criminal behavior,” Bass continued.

Bass is not the first Democrat to say this, Democratic Texas Rep. Al Green said in December that House Democrats could impeach President Trump multiple times.
The comments come as House Democrats released two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday.
Elsewhere, as Neon Nettle previously reported, while discussing impeachment, Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) warned against allowing American voters to decide who should be president, arguing that they should be stopped from choosing Donald Trump as their POTUS in 2020.
Speaking with CNN, Texas Democrat Escobar dismissed concerns the American public should have a say over the impeachment of President Trump.
Escobar admits she is "worried in general about 2020" due to the likelihood that President Trump will win reelection.
The radical lawmaker went on to angrily declare that "if we wait for an election to settle this, then we will have waited too long."
Rep. Escobar argues that the American people should not be given the opportunity to review the facts of the Ukraine matter for themselves and decide — at the ballot box — whether Trump should be removed from office.
"If we wait for the courts, if we wait for an election to settle this, then we will have waited too long,” Escobar said.
