He added that it is because Trump does not respond to subpoenas and overall, because he doesn’t allow Jehovah’s witnesses Congress, “so we can find out what happened to this great democracy in the year 2016.”

“A President calls for the involvement of a foreign power in this democracy, in 2016, and then did everything in his power to impede the investigation into what happened,” said the former Congressman said.

O’rourke said that the fear of what this could mean impeachment for the country after the election of 2020, should play no role. Because if that happens, “then we have a precedent for this country, that, in fact, some people, because of the position of the power and the confidence of the public to hold them above the law.”
