Democratic Senator Floats Impeachment: ‘There Will Be Real Soul-Searching’

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) appeared on All In With Chris Hayes to give his reaction to former FBI Director James Comey‘s bombshell hearing. And he didn’t mince words when invoking the “I” word.

“Though the former director wouldn’t say it himself, he laid out the case that describes the president of the United States trying to obstruct justice,” Murphy began. “Clear as day.”

On the question of what comes next, Murphy said that he thinks there will be “real soul-searching about the conditions for impeachment,” which stunned the MSNBC host.

Hayes followed up such a statement by asking Murphy if he believes there’s “enough on the table” to make a plausible case for obstruction. Murphy responded by saying he thinks we need to have a “better understanding” of what President Trump was trying to hide, but is convinced that the obstruction case is “clear cut” given Comey’s testimony.
