Hillary Clinton joined her fellow Democrats in calling for impeachment proceedings against President Trump on Tuesday.
Clinton made the statement while speaking to People Magazine, saying the country is in a “crisis.”
“I did not come to that decision easily or quickly, but this is an emergency as I see it,” she told the magazine.
“This latest behavior around Ukraine, trying to enlist the president of Ukraine in a plot to undermine former Vice President Biden or lose the military aid he needs to defend against Trump’s friend Vladimir Putin — if that’s not an impeachable offense, I don’t know what is.”
Clinton’s comments came the same day House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would back an official impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Pelosi reached her decision after reports surfaced that the Trump administration blocked the release of whistleblower report related to his relationship with Ukraine.
“The president of the United States is betraying our country on a daily basis,” Clinton added in her interview with People.
“This man who is in the Oval Office right now is a clear and present danger to the future of the United States.”
