Harris: ‘Congress Should Take The Steps Towards Impeachment’

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) on Monday night said she believes Congress should "take steps towards impeachment" in response to the release of the Mueller report.

Harris, who is running for president, participated in a CNN town hall in Manchester, N.H. where she was asked by Karla Alvarado, a Harvard University student, whether she believes Democrats in Congress should change their position on impeachment.

"For those of us who have been following the investigation and have seen any part of that report, it is very clear that there is a lot of good evidence pointing to obstruction and obstruction of justice," Harris said. "Let me be very clear about the table set. I believe that we need to get rid of this president. That's why I'm running to become president of the United States, so that is part of the premise obviously of my point."

She went on to say that special counsel Robert Mueller's report "produced evidence" that she believes shows President Donald Trump and his administration "engaged in obstruction of justice."

"I believe Congress should take the steps toward impeachment," Harris said.

Harris was asked last Thursday, the day the Mueller report was released, whether she supported impeachment, but she said she wanted to "hear from Bob Mueller and really understand what exactly is the evidence that supports the summary that we have been given today."
