    Garrett Haake of MSNBC speaks with former Texas Rep. and democratic candidate for president Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) at The Texas Tribune Festival on September 28, 2019, in Austin, Texas. The festival held panels with several democratic presidential candidates and some prominent Texas republicans.

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke says President Donald Trump should resign as Congress begins an impeachment investigation.
