Jim Clyburn Says Impeachment Could Hurt Democrats’ Election Odds in 2020


As Democrats press on with their impeachment inquiry, some lawmakers are worried about the potential negative consequences that would come from voting to impeach President Donald Trump.

In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) said that impeaching Trump could hurt Democrats’ electoral chances in the 2020 presidential election.

Host Dana Bash asked, “Is it possible that this could have a negative impact on your party’s prospects in 2020?”
