Jimmy Carter Gives Trump Impeachment Advice: ‘Tell The Truth For A Change’

Sydney Brooman 9 Oct 2019

Former President Jimmy Carter recently spoke to MSNBC and voiced his support for Nancy Pelosi's impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump.

The 95-year-old has accused the president of attempting to "stonewall Congress"— a direct response to the White House's blatant blocking the impeachment inquiry.

Last year, Carter voiced that impeachment would be "the wrong thing for Democrats to do."

Now, however, he's seemingly had a change of heart.

"I'm a Democrat so I feel pretty much like the Democratic Party does, as you probably know," he said. "But I think we still need to ascertain the facts from the very thorough investigation.

I'm very glad that the speaker of the House has ordained that the investigation go forward and then decide, I guess with the whole House voting on it, whether or not to proceed with the actual impeachment of the president."

"If the facts reveal an increasing number of things that he has actually done, then of course impeachment is possible and removal from office is possible."

"I think that is one of the main things that Americans are now considering — the fact that the White House is trying to stonewall and not provide adequate information on which to base a good case to be made either for or against President Trump," he continued.

"So I think that that in itself is going to be another evidence, another item of evidence, that can be used against him if he continues to stonewall and prevent the evidence to be put forward to the House of Representatives and the Senate to consider."

When asked if he had any advice for Trump, Carter was brutally honest.

"My advice to him would be, to tell the truth, I think, for a change," he said. "And also to cut back on his Twitter feeds."

He also recommended that Trump give the public the needed evidence "for or against him," implying that Trump is holding back important details vital to the inquiry.
