“Do I feel that he has committed impeachable offenses? Absolutely,” Williamson, an author and the founder of the meal delivery charity Project Angel Food, said in response to an audience question. “This president clearly has fascist leanings, and I think that all of us, conservatives as well as liberals, need to stop pretending that this isn’t true.”

However, Williamson made a distinction between whether she believed Trump has committed impeachable offenses and whether she believed he should be impeached. “As long as the Republicans… are in charge of the Senate, they wouldn’t remove him anyway, so I leave that to [House Speaker] Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiTrump on collision course with Congress over bases with Confederate names Black lawmakers unveil bill to remove Confederate statues from Capitol Pelosi: Georgia primary ‘disgrace’ could preview an election debacle in November MORE,” she said. “I think she’s got it together on this issue and I’m sure she understands the quandary very, very well.”

Williamson announced her candidacy in January, calling for a “moral and spiritual awakening” in the United States. Her platform includes free college and technical school, universal background checks for gun owners and $100 billion in reparations for descendants of slaves to be distributed over a decade.

She previously ran as in independent in California’s 33rd congressional district, finishing fourth of 16 candidates.
