Commenting Friday on Thursday’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation report, 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said that it’s too soon to talk about impeaching President Donald Trump, but the investigation of the president should continue.

Booker replied, “No,” when asked by a reporter from The Hill: “Do you think there should be a conversation about impeachment right now?”

But, when asked, “Why not?” Booker said Democrats need to continue collecting facts on the investigation and ‘See where they lead”:

“I think right now we should continue this investigation, I think Mueller should come before and testify. I don’t think we should be having that conversation. I think we should still pursue the facts, and I think this report (which was just released this morning), I think we should all be reading it, I think we should have the chance to ask a lot of questions and continue the investigations and see where they lead.”
