On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” 2020 presidential candidate and House Judiciary Committee member Eric Swalwell (D-CA) stated that he is “preparing for impeachment,” but wants to have all the documents and witnesses first.
Swalwell said, “I’m preparing for impeachment, Jake. No one can question the vigor I’ve shown to hold this president accountable, but unlike all of the other candidates in the presidential field, I would actually have to try the case on the Judiciary Committee, and I take that seriously. And so, I want to make sure we have all the documents, we get all the witnesses first, and that starts with getting the full Mueller report, having the special counsel testify, getting Don McGahn to come in, and we’re working on all of that with oversight and winning court fights.”
