Friday on MSNBC’s “Live,” presidential historian Jon Meacham said President Donald Trump should be impeached if the BuzzFeed News the report claiming Trump directed his attorney Michael Cohen to intentionally lie to Congress is true. Partial transcript as follows: TUR: Jon, really great to have you. You are looking at this from a historical lens—if this turns out to be true, do you think there is any choice that Republicans have but to vote for impeachment?
