It is a “mistake” for US Democrats to discuss the impeachment of US President Donald Trump right now, says former Secretary of State John Kerry ahead of the November midterm elections.
In an interview on Fox News on Wednesday, Kerry suggested that such discussions would be futile while special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has not born any results.
“I think that we shouldn’t be politicizing it. If you put it in the discussion now you’re making something political,” Kerry said. “I think we have to be really careful and be very analytical about whatever evidence is there. And it’s not there yet, because the Mueller investigation really has to run its course and then you can make an evaluation.”
The outspoken critic of US President Donald Trump noted that other world leaders are “waiting out” the current US president to find out “what’s next” for diplomatic and economic relationships.

The president has been at loggerheads with Kerry, often mocking him on Twitter.
The Obama administration official is rallying support for Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterms, which could empower Democrats to ultimately impeach Trump if they can win the House of Representatives.
According to a new poll released by Quinnipiac University on Wednesday, Democrats currently hold a 14-point lead over Republicans on the generic House ballot.
The survey found that 52 percent of voters back a Democratic candidate in the upcoming elections, while 38 percent favor a Republican.
According to a Real Clear Politics average of polls Democrats hold a roughly 8-point lead over the GOP.
