RI cheap political reporter. Devin Dwyer on Capitol Hill was actually. It he's basically pulled an all nighter Boris it was Atlanta for the debate. He flew back immediately did B what does here. On ABC news live. DeVon Imus get a lets you I'm hand in the Mike T you give us reaction tell us how it was and what do you pay your eggs so far. Carry mr. got here on Capitol Hill today it but I got tight it is a calmer scene out here properly can almost smell. Thanksgiving break and it's good to be back in Washington. After a whirlwind night in out letting you know that you proceedings are pure Capitol Hill overshadowed. The fifth democratic debate there were ten candidates. Last night unclear how many people watched it after a marathon week. Of these impeachment hearings with the candidates. Zeroed in on Donald Trump's conduct more broadly we heard them talk not just about Ukraine but the Muller report again to trump foundation. In its alleged wrongdoing and also the insulation. Of top donors as ambassadors and this administration. All of them saying those evidence of those are evidence the truck beats ago. We have a criminal living in the White House have made it very clear that this is impeachable conduct and I called for an impeachment proceeding anyone who wants to give me a big donation. Don't ask to be an ambassador because I'm not gonna have that happened what we cannot. Simply be consume the boy Donald Trump. You got tips we all get a lot of we're gonna lose the election. All the constitutional. Process of impeachment should be beyond politics and it is not a part of the campaign but the president's conduct its. And oh by the way I learned something about these impeachment trials I learned number one that Donald Trump doesn't want me to be the nominee. That's pretty clear. Secure we talked whenever the candidates again about impeachment after the debate no surprise that. I'll all of them think Donald Trump needs to be removed of course but their cautious on this question of removal. Five of the candidates on stage last night as you know our US senators they will be judges in an impeachment trial. Donald Trump if it gets there so they were cautious to see how they view the evidence but also there in an awkward position these are candidates. Who are running two you know officially unseat Donald Trump and at the same time to be asked whether they would vote to remove them. Before the election puts them in somewhat of an awkward position I gotta take care. I'd there's certain certain amount of skepticism about this process that they are hearing it hearing from democratic voters we certainly harder. Heard it on the ground an Atlanta the past week or so people want Democrats want Donald from gone. But they don't know yet whether this process is worth it in so they want to see these democratic candidates put forward. Are pretty aggressive platform and appealing platform to them an alternative that they can get behind want to see what how this comes out. Seven thanks so much.
