On Tuesday, Congressional Black Caucus Chair Rep. Karen Bass told TMZ that she will support impeachment AGAIN if Donald Trump is re-elected as president in 2020.
Her statement came shortly after it was announced that the House Democrats disclosed two articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Both of which I'd like to refer to as : crap and bullcrap.
During the interview, Harvey Levin asked Bass, "If the American people reelect [President Trump], what does that say to you about the American people?"
"I guess I am ultimately an optimist and I believe that the 2020 election," she responded, "Assuming we can stop him from trying to cheat, is in our hands. I think it’s our responsibility to turn people out and I feel very positive about that.Ever since he’s been elected, we have won thousands of races around the country."

"If we didn’t impeach him, that also creates a tremendous amount of rage amongst people, like in our city of Los Angeles. But, it’s really not about the election. It’s really about the fact that he has committed a crime." Bass continued, "He has abused his power and he has consistently obstructed Congress from anything. He doesn’t even want people who don’t work for him anymore to speak to Congress."
"Suppose he gets reelected," Levin inquired, "But you’re right and you win back the Senate in a big way, if you did that, would you be inclined to take a second bite of the apple and reintroduce the exact same impeachment articles and then send it through again a second time — if you have a Democratic Senate on your side."
"Yes, but I don’t think it would be exactly the same." Bass replied, "Here’s why: Because even though we’re impeaching him now, there’s still a number of court cases, there’s a ton of information that can come forward."
She added, "For example, we can get his bank records and find out he’s owned 100 percent by the Russians. You are absolutely right in your scenario, but the only thing I’d say slightly different is that it might not be the same articles of impeachment because the odds are we’ll have a ton more information."
