To Impeach or Not To Impeach—That Is the Question

To Impeach or Not To Impeach—That Is the Question

This week, Daniella and Ed sit down with Jesse Lee, senior adviser for Communications at CAP, and discuss the stream of corruption scandals within the Trump administration as well as the merits of impeachment.

As President Donald Trump absconds to the United Kingdom for the pomp and circumstance of a visit with Queen Elizabeth and the royal family, Jesse Lee, senior adviser for Communications at the Center for American Progress and this week’s guest, is here to remind us from what Trump may be running away. Whether it’s the question of impeachment heating up in Congress, or his son-in-law, Jared Kushner’s, recent disastrous interview discussing birtherism, or the ongoing drip of corruption stories emanating from the highest rungs of his administration, things are not going great for the Trump team. In this episode, Daniella and Ed break down and weigh the merits of the rising talk of impeachment with Lee, and Ed pontificates on his newest fascination: UFOs.
