    The panel on "The Five" discussed opposing messages from two
    major figures in the Democratic Party over demands that
    President Donald Trump be impeached.

    Rep. Maxine Waters of South Los Angeles claimed in a television
    interview, "I'm told that 70 percent of women who have been
    polled say that they want [Trump] impeached."

    Waters has repeatedly called for such actions.

    Her Democratic colleagues Reps. Al Green of Houston and Brad
    Sherman of Sherman Oaks, Calif. have both drafted Articles of
    Impeachment against Trump.

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D), another frequent critic of the
    president, warned that impeachment is a "legal constitutional
    standard" and not something to be thrown about in a political

    "I'm angry at what [Trump's] done," Emanuel said. "[But] you
    don't just treat the policy standard of impeachment... as a
    political tool."

    Emanuel said that such debate should be held until Trump's
    actions meet the constitutional "standard" for impeachment.

    Greg Gutfeld said Emanuel may also be cautioning against
    impeachment because a successful proceeding would result in a
    "President Mike Pence" - who would be "to the right" of Trump on
    most issues.
