Bongino: Mainstream America Is Tuning Out Everyone Talking About Impeachment
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino called proposals to impeach President Trump "literally insane."
"The founding fathers were very clear," Bongino continued. "Impeachment was reserved for high crimes and misdemeanors."
He said he believes mainstream America is "tuning everybody out who's talking about this."
This week saw the Russia collusion accusations reappear after reports that Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner's met with a Russian lawyer and others who were expected to have dirt on Hillary Clinton.
"What's the impeachment charge?" Bongino asked, calling the Trump family members' acceptance of the meeting a "bad political decision."
If bad political decisions were grounds for impeachment, former president Barack Obama would have been impeached within six months of office," the former security officer said.
"At least they had a charge" for the Bill Clinton impeachment trial, Bongino remarked. "But mainstream America was concerned about their wallet and their kitchen table. They weren't concerned about the nuance of that impeachment trial."
