O’Rourke: Trump ‘Crimes’ Extend Beyond Obstruction of Justice

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke said Sunday President Donald Trump’s “crimes” might extend beyond obstruction of justice to “using public office for personal gain.”

In an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” O’Rourke, who’s poll numbers have been slipping in the race among Democrats running for the White House in 2020, said the report of special counsel Robert Mueller was “clear” about obstruction of justice.

“But I think those crimes might extend beyond what we have seen in the Mueller report,” he said. “Using public office for personal gain, for himself and for his family.”

He also decried “the relationship that he has with [Russia’s President] Vladimir Putin, which has never been properly explained” — and said impeachment should be pursued by Congress.

“From the invitation as a candidate to have Russia involve itself in our election, his efforts to obstruct justice, the fact that he called Vladimir Putin after the Mueller report was released, called it a hoax, thereby giving him a green light to further participate in our democracy and our elections,” O’Rourke said.

“If with don’t hold the president accountable we’ll set the precedent that some people in this country, because of their position of power, are in fact above the law. And if we do that, we’ll lose this democracy forever,” he declared.

O’Rourke said it doesn’t matter what polling shows, or that many Democratic lawmakers favor impeachment.

“Regardless of the popularity of the idea or what the polling shows us, we must proceed with impeachment so we get the facts and the truth and at end of the day there’s justice for what was done to our democracy in 2016,” he said.

  1. Poor Beto. His audience and support continues to flounder, yet the mainstream media continues to listen and broadcast his grasping for an issue. Pity them both.

  2. These deranged Democrats are “STILL” Upset over Donald J Trump winning the Presidential Race to the White House.
    They’re all Butt Hurt.

    I suggest they buy cases of Preparation “H” to relieve their BUTT pain.

    Whiney little babies need their Pacifiers, Blankets, Teddy Bears and Play-Doh.

  3. The Democrats are a bunch of crooks they don’t give a damn about the country or the people all they care about is money and power

  4. Beto should be worried about taking care of his district. He’s letting his constituents down by chasing the Presidency and crying for impeachment. Beto’s 15 minutes are over and he’s desperately hanging on.

  5. Really little Beto? Name the crimes and produce your evidence. You can’t come up with either one. You need to shut up and go back to sucking your thumb.

  6. Please go home Little Beto and take care of your family. You are a loser– a twelve year old in a 50 year old body. Keep your opinions to yourself until the AG has finished his investigation of the deep swamp–We all know you are more than willing to jump into the deep swamp– Only a great man the caliber of D. Trump will succeed in cleaning up our government and killing off the deep swamp. God help us all if you should ever be elected to a public position.
