Skip to comments.With 'legal grounds,' Jenny Wilson says she would move for Trump's impeachment (Utah Dem candidate)

If there are legal grounds to support it, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jenny Wilson said Monday that she "will support moving toward impeachment" of President Donald Trump.
"If the (special counsel Robert) Mueller report comes out with a grounds toward impeachment, I think we are in such chaos as a nation, we cannot heal until he's gone," Wilson told the editorial boards of the Deseret News and KSL.
That said, Wilson said she awaits the release of the Mueller report on the yearlong investigation into the president's conduct. "I'm not favoring impeachment at this moment in time," she said.
But in the past five days, she feels the country has come to "a breaking point."
"Until he's gone, we're going nowhere," she said.
In Wilson's various roles as a candidate, a Salt Lake County councilwoman and a mother, she puts Trump's actions "to the reasonableness lens and he's never passed it. Then you take in the insults, the division, and I just can't give him a pass anymore."
Wilson said she wants to be a "change agent," in Congress.
Decades have passed since there has been any meaningful immigration reform by Congress, she said.
"We have to find a pathway forward. We have no other choice. I think it is irresponsible not to address people here, people who have been working and living in the community. Government needs to find a way for them to get out of the shadows. Taking emotion out, it's a cost-benefit risk analysis, where and how can we get beyond this division," she said.
While emotion tends to drive the immigration debate, Wilson said the best policy approaches are evidenced based.
"The economic principles of expanding immigration are really the key, looking at where and how we need workers," she said.
Were she elected to the U.S. Senate, she would be a junior senator from Utah, one of 100, she acknowledged. "But I do think, over time, a new voice, a new vision," she said.
"One of my problems with (Republican Mitt) Romney is, he's the same ol' and I'm seeing more and more and of that on this campaign. I'm frankly more and more frustrated by his lack of engagement and his sort of high-level answer to stuff. We need to get in the weeds," she said.
The Romney campaign declined to comment.
The latest UtahPolicy.com poll shows Wilson trailing Romney 29 percent to 55 percent.
Somebody has been talking to Maxine.
“Legal grounds.” Well, there’s the rub, isn’t it?
Willard could do us a solid and play ringer again like he did for Zero. At least the Communist Democrat will be in the right party.
So, we are stuck with Romney as the only choice?
“I think we are in such chaos as a nation, we cannot heal until he’s gone,”................ Where the hell was she living in the past 10 years? In a cave in the Canadian Rockies away from all media? Industry is growing, jobs are popping up so I guess that’s the new chaos. Naaaaaah, chaos to them is trying to decide which restroom applies to them. I don’t see chaos, I see growth. GBA!MAG’er! Remove the Slime from the swamp, don’t add to it with candidates like her.
The Democrats are running on impeachment. No issues, just impeachment.
Heck, I’d vote for impeachment too... if there were legal grounds.
But, there is zero grounds. So, why even bring it up? Because they are ‘Rats, and that is what ‘Rats do.
“With ‘legal grounds,’ Jenny Wilson says she would move for Trump’s impeachment (Utah Dem candidate)”
She’s running for the U.S. Senate. If Trump was impeached by the House she would have to vote in a Senate trial.
Should this potential “juror” refrain from speculating about impeachment matters until evidence has been presented?
Her comments make it appear that she has already formed a partisan political bias against President Trump.
She should be excluded from the jury pool. For one thing, she does not understand the Constitution.
She’s running on Mitt’s platform.
When a McCain disappears, a Milt arrives. ~Ancient Indonesian saying.
Right, overdue library book.
Yeah, lets impeach him
He scared Chad, Sasha and Muffie on the television while I was trying to teach them Swahili.
It’s not lying if you really believe it. When she takes an oath to follow the constitution...does she have to read it first?
What is the crime? Not allowing the oligarchs to genocide us at will?
So her and Romney are on the same page.
They’ll go for impeachment for an unpaid parking ticket if thats all they got.
Obstruction of (anti-gun/confiscation) justice.
What has she been smoking and is it legal in her state? There is no evidence of a Trump crime and therefore no basis for a Special Council. This is so crazy and most people are so misinformed that they don’t see it. The democRATs depend on a permanent, dependent, uninformed underclass to take their poverty-level food stamps and welfare in return for democrat votes.
