As the issue of impeachment proceedings plagues the Democratic Party, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said that as a Republican, he wants them to continue with discussions, but as an American, knows it would be the wrong decision.
Speaking to "Outnumbered" host Sandra Smith on Tuesday, King touched on the divide between Democratic leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has condemned impeachment discussions, and freshmen like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who have rallied to move forward with impeachment proceedings.
For Democrats elected in centrist districts, he continued, it's particularly risky to bring up the topic of impeachment after Robert Mueller's investigation did not find enough evidence President Trump colluded with Russia.
Some 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have even rallied for impeachment discussions, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Kamala Harris.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote in a letter to her Democratic colleagues on Monday that moving forward with impeachment would be "divisive" and "not worth it."
