Following reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is delaying sending the House’s Articles of Impeachment over to the Senate for a trial until the Senate can agree to a process the House deems "fair," House Majority Whip James Clyburn suggested the House should press ahead with the process, saying Congress should “give [Trump] a fair trial and hang him.”
“I was like, let’s give him a fair trial and hang him,” Clyburn told CNN’s John Berman Wednesday night’s vote to impeach Trump.
When Berman pressed the Democratic leader on whether that meant he believed the House should send the impeachment process to the Senate, Clyburn answered in the affirmative.
“If it were me, yes, that’s what I’m saying,” Clyburn responded.
