Former president Jimmy Carter on Tuesday advised President Donald Trump, who is facing possible impeachment, to tell the truth “for a change.”
During an appearance on MSNBC, Carter was asked if the House impeachment inquiry is a “good thing.”
“I think it still remains to be seen,” Carter replied. “Depending on what’s revealed in an inquiry. I’m a Democrat so I feel pretty much like the Democratic Party does, as you probably know.”
Carter said that he was “very glad” that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was proceeding with the inquiry.
The former president called the White House’s stonewalling on witnesses “a departure from custom and departure from what the American people expect.”
“Any advice for President Trump going through this?” MSNBC host Andrew Mitchell asked Carter.
“My advice to him would be to tell the truth I think for a change,” Carter said, “and also to cut back on his Twitter feeds and give the House of Representatives and also the Senate and I say the general public the evidence that we need to form a case either for or against him.”

Android phones will receive warnings triggered by a "ShakeAlert" earthquake early-warning system implemented on the West Coast by the US Geological Survey and partners.
ShakeAlert uses signals from hundreds of seismometers across the state to trigger warning messages that "an earthquake has begun and shaking is imminent," according to the system's website.
"We saw an opportunity to use Android to provide people with timely, helpful earthquake information when they search, as well as a few seconds warning to get themselves and their loved ones to safety if needed," principal software engineer Marc Stogaitis said in a blog post.
