Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar described President Donald Trump’s behavior as unambiguously impeachable, calling it “a global Watergate” and the textbook behavior of what the Founding Fathers considered worthy of removal from office.
“This is something where the Founding Fathers themselves, James Madison said, the reasons we needed impeachment provisions was that he feared that a president would betray the trust of the American people to a foreign power,” Klobuchar said. “That is why this is proceeding. I see it simply as a global Watergate.“
