'Moderate' Mayor Pete Buttigieg Backs Impeaching Trump

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, widely referred to as a "moderate," said he supports starting congressional proceedings to impeach President Donald Trump.

In an interview with the Washington Post on Thursday, Buttigieg was asked if he supports impeachment proceedings against the president, to which he responded, "of course," The Hill reports.​

The South Bend, Indiana mayor also said "it’s very clear the president deserves impeachment," adding: "And the case for impeachment is being built each passing day by the White House."

"As to when and how the House goes about launching those procedural steps to get the inquiry up and running, I’m going to leave that up to the House," he said.
