The co-hosts of ‘The View’ discussed impeachment
On The View, the co-hosts discussed the idea of President Donald Trump being impeached. During the debate, Sunny Hostin compared the current state of impeachment to how the Senate voted during President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial.
“I think we also have to compare the Senate vote before. You had so many senators that voted to not only impeach, but also convict President Clinton for, yes, perjuring himself. Many of those people are still in the senate,” Hostin said.
She added, “I cannot believe they would vote to impeach and convict a president, a sitting president for perjuring himself, and they would not vote to convict a president…and remove a president who clearly used a…wanted to use a foreign government for his own personal benefit to impede our very democracy. That is the height of hypocrisy for this Republican-led senate.”

After The View ended, McCain took to Twitter to share her side of the debate.
“Dems and Rs alike need to confront the ugly truth: both parties are failing to be impartial jurors. I won’t be quiet, even if the reality reflects poorly on the entire political establishment. I have a responsibility to speak for the 50% that feels media doesn’t represent them,” she tweeted.
