Dem Sen. Coons: Justin Amash ‘Saying Publicly’ What Republicans ‘Are Thinking Privately’

Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) discussed Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) declaring President Donald Trump had engaged in “impeachable conduct.”

Coons said, “I was surprised to see a Republican congressman saying publicly what I think many are thinking privately. Which is those who have read the Mueller report cannot avoid the conclusion that the president and some of his absolutely core advisers engaged in profoundly disappointing, reprehensible conduct. Conduct that would rise to the level of obstruction of justice if he were anyone other than the president of the United States.”

Co-host Alisyn Camerota asked, “You don’t think Republicans are thinking that privately, do you?”

Coons replied. “Yes.”

Camerota pressed, “What makes you say that?”

Coons said, “Conversations.”
