Conway Urges Congress to Impeach Trump: He's a 'Cancer'

"The actions of President Trump before he was officially sworn in as President of United States is now being investigated by the Southern District of NY and much of it is part of the completed report by independent investigator, Robert Mueller", wrote Tlaib in a letter to her Democrat colleagues last month, urging that they sign on to her resolutions.

One area of contention for Mueller was whether Trump had attempted to obstruct justice during the investigation into potential Russian collusion - and he was unable to state categorically that "no criminal conduct occurred".

In his report, Mueller did not establish that Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election. "As such, I'll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib's impeachment resolution".

Conway expressed similar thoughts in a Washington Post op-ed, published on Thursday, where he called Mueller's report "damning", condemned Trump as a "cancer in the presidency" and encouraged Congress to remove him from office based on findings from the special counsel's investigation.

Hoyer's apparent signal that Democratic leadership, like most of the rest of the country, is prepared to move on from the special counsel investigation didn't sit well with a host of anti-Trump commentators.

"Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay", he added.

In recent months, top Democrats have appeared to defer questions about ousting Trump until Mueller's investigation concluded.

Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, asserted that the report "outlines disturbing evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction of justice" and urged Congress to hold Trump accountable. Congressman Brad Sherman said the report revealed that Trump committed felony crimes of obstruction that make the case for impeachment even stronger. "Mueller's report is not a vindication of Trump, but a condemnation". Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, also said, "Impeachment is still off the table".

"The evidence we obtained about the president's actions and intent presents hard issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred", the special counsel wrote.
