Fiorina says it’s ‘vital’ to impeach Trump

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina told CNN in an interview that aired Monday that she considered it “vital” to impeach President Trump.

Fiorina, a 2016 Republican primary candidate, said Trump’s behavior as president was “not just unbecoming, I think it’s destructive to our Republic.” Fiorina said she thought Hillary Clinton was “corrupt,” too.

Fiorina said she voted for Trump in 2016 and did not rule out voting for him again in 2020, but she felt it was important to go ahead with the process because his “conduct is impeachable.”

She added that she wasn’t sure Trump should be “removed this close to an election.” She urged fellow Republicans to keep an open mind rather than simply rushing to Trump’s defense, even if it costs them at the polls.

“Hanging onto a job is not the most important thing,” she said.

Fiorina was an adviser to Republican Senator John McCain‘s 2008 presidential campaign. In 2010, she won the Republican nomination for the United States Senate in California, but lost the general election to incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer.

Fiorina was a candidate in the 2016 Republican presidential primary, and was for seven days the vice-presidential running mate of Ted Cruz until he suspended his campaign, setting the record for shortest vice presidential candidacy in modern U.S. history.
