President Donald Trump committed treason this week and should be impeached, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday.
The Democratic presidential candidate was on MSNBC and reacted to Trump’s comments in regards to accepting dirt on his political opponents from foreign countries. Trump said he would be willing to accept the information, which promoted an outcry among Democrats and even some Republicans.
“What happened the other day changed my mind because that was treason,” de Blasio said.
“That was treason, what he said was openly treason. It was an invitation to hostile foreign governments to find information on American leaders and give it to Donald Trump to help Donald Trump.”
De Blasio, who announced his candidacy for president last month, added that it’s time for Democrats to start the impeachment process.
“I heard that and I said, ‘That’s the last straw. They should begin impeachment proceedings,” he said.
