You were recently elected chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, the fifth-ranking position in the party leadership. At 48, you’re basically a teenager in Democrat world, because some of the top House Democrats are close to 80. Will you be giving them advice on young-people stuff? Well, Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn are extremely hip in their own right, so I don’t believe they need any advice from me.
In 2012, The Washington Post asked if you were Brooklyn’s Barack Obama. It’s a comparison you’ve heard a lot by now. How similar are you guys really? My mother has done a tremendous job of circulating talking points throughout the country. There is and will only ever be one Barack Obama, who was a phenomenal president. The only thing that I can definitively say we have in common is that we were both born on Aug. 4.
Many people are already speculating that you’ll be a future speaker of the House. Is that kind of talk distracting? It’s not something that I really pay close attention to. During my time in public service, it’s become clear that you have to do the job that you currently have, do that job well and not get distracted. The rest tends to take care of itself.
You represent Brooklyn, which has some of the fastest-gentrifying neighborhoods in the country. You also grew up there. When you see something like, say, an artisanal mayo shop opening in your neighborhood, how does that make you feel? What shocked me the most, to tell you the truth, was the moment a few years ago when I saw someone walking down Franklin Avenue carrying a surfboard in his hand, apparently on his way to the A train so he can go surf out on Rockaway Beach. Growing up in Crown Heights, it was not uncommon to hear gunshots going off every single day of the week during the height of the crack-cocaine epidemic. Those days are gone, and it’s a much better place to be able to raise my sons, in the context of safety. Still, I would have never thought that I would have seen someone who looked like they were from Malibu walking on Franklin Avenue with a surfboard, without a care in the world.
The Democrats are gearing up to unleash a number of investigations into the Trump administration. You’ve warned that the Democrats shouldn’t be overly aggressive in their oversight responsibilities. What would being overly aggressive look like? In my view, we have to remain focused on kitchen- table pocketbook issues that led us into the majority. If we were to go down the road of subpoenas flying out of the House of Representatives every other day over the next two years, that would be an example of overreaching in a fashion that could jeopardize our majority. We do have a constitutional responsibility to serve as a check and balance on an out-of-control executive branch. However, we must do it in a way that is not overzealous.
Based solely on what we know publicly now, do you think President Trump has committed impeachable offenses as president? The Mueller investigation has not been completed. I think we should all take a deep breath and allow Bob Mueller to be Bob Mueller and continue with his investigation.
And what if he’s not allowed to complete that work? How confident are you that your Republican colleagues would do something about it? In the event that Trump provoked a constitutional crisis by terminating the Mueller investigation or suppressing its findings, certainly it’s my hope that my colleagues in the Senate would not conduct themselves as if they were members of a Trump-like cult but would function as a separate and coequal branch of government and push back hard against that type of overreach. But that’s a hypothetical, which I choose not to contemplate at this moment because it would really test the constitutional fabric of our democratic republic.B:
