CNN’s David Gergen: ‘I Think We’re in Impeachment Territory’

One of the immediate conclusions many pundits and lawmakers reached after the bombshell report dropped alleging President Donald Trump pressed then-FBI Director James Comey to stop the investigation into ex-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was that this represented “obstruction of justice.” And, if that was the case, impeachment was on the table.

Add CNN political analyst David Gergen to that list.

During a CNN panel discussion tonight, the ex-presidential adviser explained why he believes this to be the case.

“After watching the Clinton impeachment, I thought I would never see another one,” Gergen told host Anderson Cooper. “But I think we’re in impeachment territory for the first time.”

When pressed by Cooper, he noted that it was due to the “obstruction of justice” issue, stating that it certainly looked like Trump was trying to impede an investigation and use his power to stop Comey. Additionally, this is the third huge story revolving around the White House in a week, following Comey’s firing and Trump divulging highly classified information to Russian officials.
