Jimmy Carter Cautions Democrats to Avoid Impeachment Talk

Former president Jimmy Carter told Fox Business Tuesday that his fellow Democrats should avoid calling for President Trump’s impeachment

"Not me, I don't talk about impeachment," Carter said of that push within the party. "I think that’s the wrong thing for Democrats to do."

"I think the outcomes of the 2018 midterm elections are just completely unknown now," he added.

"I'm not actively involved in politics anymore, as you know, but I’ll be helping the Democrats as best I can," he emphasized. "I think that the American people will make the right choice."

High-ranking Democrats have typically shied away from impeachment talk. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called such talk a “gift to Republicans,” earlier this year.

However, Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Al Green (D-TX) have been vocal proponents of impeachment. Waters told MSNBC Sunday that Democrats should be making impeachment a “central issue” in the midterm elections.

Fox’s Neil Cavuto also asked Carter about claims that the stock market would collapse if Trump were impeached.

"You know, I think the president has much less influence over the economy than is certainly publicized by the president himself," he replied. "But whenever the economy goes up, the president always wants to take credit for it. Whenever the economy goes down, the president wants to avoid responsibility. And I think it’s been that way in our country ever since we started."
