Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said Sunday that President Trump “clearly has fascist leanings” that warrant impeachment.

“Do I feel that he has committed impeachable offenses? Absolutely. I think this president clearly has fascist leanings, and I think that all of us, conservatives as well as liberals, need to stop pretending that this isn’t true. So there are many things about the president behavior, his policies and so forth I would consider impeachable offenses,” Ms. Williamson said during a CNN town hall.

“That’s a very different question than whether or not he should be impeached given the fact that as long as the Republicans, which they are and will be for the next two years, are in charge of the Senate, they wouldn’t remove him anyway. So I leave that to [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi. I think she’s got it together on this and I’m sure she understands the quandary very well,” she continued.

Ms. Williamson, founder of food delivery program Project Angel Food and an author, is one of almost 20 Democratic candidates currently vying to be the nominee to challenge Mr. Trump in the 2020 election.

The author and activist tweeted last Monday that she needs more than 20,000 more unique donors before she can qualify for the Democratic debates.
