Carly Fiorina: It’s ‘Vital’ That Trump Be Impeached

Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said Monday she supports the impeachment effort against President Donald Trump but left open the possibility that she will vote for him in 2020.

“I think it is vital that he be impeached,” Fiorina said on CNN’s “Boss Files with Poppy Harlow” podcast. “Whether removed this close to an election, I don’t know. But I think the conduct is impeachable.”

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO also criticized Trump’s conduct toward National Security Council official Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified during the House’s impeachment hearings about his concerns about the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Some of this conduct, like publicly berating a decorated war veteran who shows up in response to a lawfully issued subpoena of Congress, I think that conduct is not just unbecoming, I think it’s destructive to our republic,” Fiorina said.

“I do think that the systematic tearing down of people, institutions, political opponents, will have long-lasting damage if it goes on for much longer,” she added.

Despite Fiorina’s harsh condemnation of Trump’s conduct in office, she didn’t rule out voting for him in 2020.

“It depends who the Democrats put up,” Fiorina said.

Fiorina, who ran against Trump in the 2016 Republican primary, said she wasn’t interested in making another run for the presidency.

“I don’t think that’s something I have an interest in doing right now because the Republican Party right now seems to be all about pledging fealty to Donald Trump no matter what and I am just not in that place,” she said.

  1. Thank goodness she lost and won’t run again. She might have done the same damage to the country that she did to HP.

  2. Fiorina probably means well. But something she probably doesn’t know.

    She said ““Some of this conduct, like publicly berating a decorated war veteran who shows up in response to a lawfully issued subpoena of Congress, I think that conduct is not just unbecoming, I think it’s destructive to our republic,”.

    John Kerry was also a “highly decorated war veteran”, i.e., he spent 4 months in Vietnam and came back a highly decorated hero (he wrote his own recommendations for medals). Men serving on the river boats who later formed an organization (Swift Boat Veterans for Truth) disputed Kerry’s claims.
    And, truth be told, so did his Commanding Officer.

    At any rate, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, should be referred to as Lt. Col Vindman, a purple heart recipient, not as a “highly decorated hero”, which he was not. Practically any officer serving in Viet Nam that received any wound whatsoever (stumped toe) would receive a Purple Heart if he applied for one. Think. Most of your “highly decorated” soldiers (look at a generals chest) get decorated as much, or more, for rank and privilege as well as through political connections. They are not always the true hero’s awarded on the battle field. Most likely the true hero’s never get the awards. Not to take away Lt Col Vindman’s service. He may well have earned and deserved his purple heart, but a purple heart is not the same thing as a medal for bravery.

  3. What a disappointment. I’m even embarrassed to say I attended a fund raiser for her waaaay back before the 2016 field took shape. The first time I heard her speak I was encouraged and pleased. Then every time thereafter I realized she had one canned speech and no real ideas.

  4. Carly would have been a RINO if she had been elected! The corrupt Democrats can not impeach because there is no legal basis to do so! Their best reason is to keep him from being elected in 2020, which is what they tried in 2016! It is called treason and should be treated as such!
