Ilhan Omar: “It’s not if we are going to impeach this president, it’s when"

Omar interpreted Nadler’s statement in a different way. She highlighted the change in public opinion during former President Richard Nixon’s impeachment proceedings, saying that, though the public may not be on board at this time, she believed that as the investigation reveals information, the consensus will change.

“It’s not if we are going to impeach this president, it’s when,” she said, adding that she thinks it’s important that Americans are fully informed on the “crimes and misdemeanors” believed to have been committed by the president so they can understand why he should face removal from office.
