Transcript for Rep. Seth Moulton announces his 2020 presidential run on 'Good Morning America'
I have breaking political news right now. Seth Moulton, the latest Democrat to join the race for the white house. He's a congressman, former marine and made the announcement here on "Gma." We're joining by democratic candidate Seth Moulton. Thank you for joining us. George, I'm here to tell you and America that I'm running for president of the United States. I'm running because I'm a because I believe in this country because I've never wanted to sit on the sideline when it comes to serving it. That's why I joined the Marines. That's why I ran for congress to try to prevent what I saw got us into Iraq from happening again. And why I want to taken 0 the most divisive president in history to bring us back together. You're a patriot democratic candidate in the race. You're the 19th official candidate. What sets you apart? What do you offer that nobody else does? Well, first off, I'm going to talk about patriotism, about security and service. This is too long that Democrats have ceded to Republicans, we've got to stop this. This is the core weakness. And that's what I'm going to do. Big question, should the house open impeachment proceedings. Your senator Elizabeth Warren said yes. Do you agree? I don't think it's a right time to have a vote on impeachment until we get the evidence out there. But we should be having this debate, and frankly, we should have had it starting last year. I think our party made a mistake by waiting for a smoking gun in the Mueller report. There's not a smoking gun like we were hoping for. There is a smoking gun about our national security. We all should be ask why Putin wanted trump elected president. Some Democrats have listed Mueller report saying there's plenty of evidence of obstruction. Well, there is that, yes. Now do you believe the president obstructed, do you? From what I've seen, I believe he did. That's why it's clear and we also have to have Robert Mueller to tof before congress. It's time for us to testify in I think we should be doing it for a while, to have this debate. To getting it out in public and having this discussion with the American people about whether or not the president committed crimes. President trump is going to tell those voters that Democrats are offering socialism. Well, I'm not a socialist. I'm a Democrat. And I want to make that clear. Maybe that's a differentiator in the race. I think health care is all right. I think everybody in America should have access to good affordable health care. I made a choice to getting my own independent health care at the va. If I'm elected, I'm not going to force you off your private health care plan. Good luck on the trail. Seth Moulton, the 19th candidate.
