Harris joins impeachment call during Democratic town hall for vanguard news ,
California Sen. Kamala Harris joined the call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment on Monday as five leading Democratic ,
Presidential contenders clashed in a series of prime-time town hall meetings that exposed deep divisions in a party desperate to end the Trump presidency.
Harris’ unexpected support for impeachment follows Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s push for Congress to begin the process to remove the Republican president following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report — a plan all but certain to fail without significant Republican support.
The impeachment debate, which is raging among Democrats nationwide, played out on national television Monday as five 2020 hopefuls representing different wings of the party addressed young voters in first-in-the-nation primary state New Hampshire.
While they took turns on stage, the forum — hosted by CNN — marked the first time this young presidential primary season in which multiple candidates appeared on national television for the same event.
The five-hour marathon marked a preview of sorts for the party’s first formal presidential debate, set for late June.On Monday, they clashed from afar while taking questions from college students about free college, free health care, gun control and impeachment.
A central question underscored many of the questions posed to the candidates, who were in many cases forced to address their greatest political liabilities: Who is best positioned to deny Trump a second term?
Republicans, led by Trump, have spent much of the last year warning voters that Democrats would take the country toward socialism should they win in 2020.
“I wish I could staple a free college diploma to every one of your chairs,” Klobuchar told the audience of college students. “I have to be straight with you and tell you the truth.”
