He says the impeachment process in not a comfortable one, butevery member of Congress must uphold their sworn duty and address it.

When asked if Senators will impeach the President?

“Oh, absolutely not. The President has bullied them to the point that I won’t happen, but what will happen is the public will have a chance to see in real time the evidence,” said Thompson. “They’ll have a chance to hear the testimony of what we saw in the House of Representatives and they can make up their minds for themselves.”
