Civic Cocktail: Congressman Adam Smith + Youth Activism
Civic Cocktail: Congressman Adam Smith + Youth Activism

As several U.S. House committees pursue an impeachment inquiry, Washington Congressman Adam Smith tells host Joni Balter, "Impeachment is not a good thing, it's just not." The 9th District Democrat says the process is divisive and poses some political concerns for his party heading into 2020. Still, Smith agrees President Trump's behavior is not acceptable and he needs to be held accountable. And he says what's most puzzling, the President hasn't even tried to hide his dealings with Ukraine. And just two weeks after she addressed a congressional committee on the climate crisis, 17-year-old Jamie Margolin of Seattle tells how she stood up to a house member and called him, "cowardly." The co-founder of the international nonprofit Zero Hour doesn't mince words when talking about the climate crisis, saying "Our oceans are dying, our salmon are dying... there is no gray area for survival, so it's kind of either we do survive this thing or we don't."
