‘I’m Not There at This Point’: Sanders Isn’t Ready to Jump on the Trump Impeachment Wagon Yet

This evening, CNN scheduled a town hall debate between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich. Of course, when they scheduled the thing, the news cycle hadn’t been hit by the one-two punch of President Donald Trump’s classified info sharing with the Russians and the report that Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to stop the investigation of ex-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

So, obviously, the two former presidential candidates were asked the big question that has now bubbled up to the surface — is there sufficient grounds for impeachment?

“I don’t think we’re there,” Kasich answered. “I don’t think we know exactly what happened. The Russian investigation is very, very important.”

And Sanders pretty much agreed with his conservative stagemate. While acknowledging that there a lot of questions surrounding Russian interference in the election, he doesn’t think it has risen to impeachment just yet.

“John is right,” Sanders stated. “I don’t think you want to make that leap to impeachment until you follow a path which leads us there. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. But I’m not there at this point.”

While the senator may not be there yet, a number of pundits and lawmakers expressed their belief that the Comey/Flynn story looks to be obstruction of justice on Trump’s part and that it could be grounds for impeachment.
