Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) revealed House Democrats are open to impeaching President Trump again if he wins the presidential election in 2020.

Bass, who represents California's 37th congressional district, was asked by TMZ if Democrats would try to impeach Trump on the same two articles that were presented on Monday, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress if they gain control of the Senate.

"So, you know, yes, but I don't think it would be exactly the same and here's why: Because even though we are impeaching him now, there's still a number of court cases, there's a ton of information that could come forward. For example, we could get his bank records and find out that's he's owned a 100 percent by the Russians," Bass said.

"So you are absolutely right in your scenario, but the only thing I would say...is it might not be the same articles of impeachment because the odds are we'd have a ton more information," she continued. "And then the odds of that, sadly enough, you know, he has other examples of criminal behavior."  

Bass is not the first House Democrat to say they will continue with impeachment if Trump wins a second term. Rep. Al Green (D-TX) said there "is no limit on the number on the times the Senate can vote to convict or not a president. No limit to the number of times a House can vote to impeach or not a president," adding he believes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will continue with more investigations into Trump.
