Amy Klobuchar addresses push to impeach Trump

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar says President Donald Trump should be held accountable following special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, but she stopped short of calling for impeachment.

The senator from Minnesota said during a CNN town hall in New Hampshire on Monday night that impeachment proceedings are up to the House and that lawmakers there will have to make that decision for themselves.

Klobuchar said she didn’t want to weigh in too much because she is in the Senate and believes “that we are the jury.”

She added: “If the House brings the impeachment proceedings before us, we will deal with them.”

Klobuchar’s colleague in the Senate and fellow 2020 contender Elizabeth Warren has called for Trump to be impeached.

Klobuchar says other ways to hold the president accountable are through congressional investigations and defeating him in 2020.
