Sen. Kamala Harris late Monday said she would support Congress starting impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
That comes on the heels of fellow Democratic presidential contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren last week calling for impeachment.
"I think we have very good reason to believe that there is an investigation that has been conducted, which has produced evidence that tells us that this president and his administration engaged in obstruction of justice," Harris in response to a question at a CNN town hall in New Hampshire. "I believe Congress should take the steps toward impeachment."
Harris, the junior senator from California and a member of the Senate's Judiciary Committee and Select Intelligence Committee, said the report released following Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election made it clear there was "good evidence" to make a case for obstruction of justice.
"For those of us who have been following the investigation, and have seen any part of that report, it's very clear that there's a lot of good evidence pointing to obstruction and obstruction of justice," said Harris, a former prosecutor who once served as district attorney in San Francisco and later as California attorney general.
