“Why do we have a bunch of people in Congress making this decision?”
In an interview with “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell, Nikki Haley said she does not believe Trump will get impeached. She also compared impeaching a president to the death penalty.
“You’re gonna impeach a president for asking for a favor that didn’t happen and– and giving money and it wasn’t withheld?” Haley said. “I don’t know what you would impeach him on. And look, Norah, impeachment is, like, the death penalty for a public official.”
“When you look at the transcript, there’s nothing in that transcript that warrants the death penalty for the president,” she said, referring to a summary of a call President Trump had in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
O’Donnell responded: “To be clear, it was not a complete transcript. There are still things that are missing from it. And in it, he does say, ‘I would like you to do us a favor,’ though.”CBS:
