"Sufficient evidence to impeach" - Beto O'Rourke

Beto O'Rourke says, if articles of impeachment were presented today, there is more than sufficient evidence to impeach the president.

He spoke to reporters after appearing on stage at the Texas Tribune Festival Saturday in Austin, Texas.

And there may be sufficient votes to be successful in that Articles of Impeachment vote." Speaking to reporters Saturday after appearing on stage at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, Texas, the Democratic presidential candidate expressed his concerns for the future.

"What I'm concerned about is the future of this country.

And if we do not get this right, right now, we'll lose this country and certainly we'll lose our democracy forever.

We can just never get this back.

It's a really extraordinary, exceptional thing that we've agreed to govern ourselves through elected representatives in a democracy.

The moment that people can use those positions of trust against others, against this country, for themselves and their own political benefit, without consequence, or accountability, or justice, is the minute that we lose this.

So, I want to make sure that the House of Representatives moves with all deliberate speed.

Especially given the fact that much of this stuff we have known for many years.

Some moderate Democratic lawmakers who a week ago had little interest in talking about an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump say they are now optimistic they can sell it to voters at home during a recess of the U.S. Congress over the next two weeks.

Representative Susan Wild was among a number of Democrats from highly competitive "swing" seats in the House of Representatives who changed her mind to back an impeachment probe against Trump.

She expects to hear about it at a town hall meeting next week in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Wild says her district is about equally divided between Democrats and Republicans, including Trump voters.

But she doesn't appear worried.

"I don't think I have to convince them.

I think the facts will convince them," Wild told Reuters on Friday.

Her office email and phone calls have been running 11-to-one in favor of an impeachment inquiry, a "marked contrast to the kind of communications that we've gotten the last few months from our constituents," she said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry against Trump on Tuesday.

She had resisted demands for such a probe for months, but reversed course after reports that Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 telephone call to investigate his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who did work for a Ukraine gas company.
