Schiff 'not convinced' on impeachment despite Trump ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’

Rep. Adam Schiff said Democrats were not ready to impeach President Trump even as he said a lot of the president's behavior met the Constitutional bar of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

“But in terms of the impeachment process, it's not mandated by the Constitution. We can avail ourselves of this when the president demonstrates acts that are high crimes or misdemeanors,” the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

“I think that much of his conduct qualifies for that. But at the same time, we have to recognize that the reality that one party, the Republican party, has turned itself into a cult of the president's personality and is not likely to act consistent with its constitutional obligations. And, we have to figure out in that context, is this the right thing for the country? I'm just not convinced, not yet, that that's the case,” Schiff said.
