The tech entrepreneur and 2020 Democratic candidate also claim that “I will say that the politics may or may not work out in the right way, but we’re a country of laws. You have to enforce the laws.”
The warning about “the trap” Dems face heading into 2020 has been a constant fear he says.

Nearly all of the 2020 presidential candidates have showcased keen interest and support for the inquiry launched this week by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
