Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton says it’s “premature” to impeach President Trump as Democrats in Congress introduced articles of impeachment against Trump earlier this week.
“I think we need the investigations to continue,” she told Mother Jones in an interview published Friday. “I think that it’s premature [to impeach Trump.]”
A group of Democrats on Wednesday introduced five articles of impeachment against Trump as special counsel Robert Mueller investigates Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
Clinton said last month that “we know everything we need to know” in the Russia investigation as Mueller brought charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates.
“We just have to make sure that members of Congress do their jobs and hold the president accountable,” Clinton said on her book tour in Chicago.
