Bass said in an interview with TMZ that she would be inclined to take a second stab at impeaching Trump, particularly if both chambers of Congress are controlled by Democrats after the 2020 election.
“It might not be the same articles of impeachment, because the odds are we would have a ton more information. And then the odds of that, sadly enough, is that, you know, he probably has other examples of criminal behavior,” she said.
Bass’s comments came the same day House Democrats unveiled two impeachment articles — one for abuse of power and one for obstruction of Congress — against Trump.
“Even though we are impeaching him now, there’s still a number of court cases, there’s a ton of information that could come forward,” she said. “For example, we could get his bank records and find out that he’s owned a hundred percent by the Russians.”

Bass said she believes the scenario is purely hypothetical because she thinks Trump will lose in 2020 to the eventual Democratic nominee.
