Reid was in Las Vegas to speak on a panel at UNLV. He was in the Senate when the articles of impeachment were announced against Bill Clinton and says he believes this time things could go very differently.

"In that case Clinton became more popular, I don't see that happening here because it's a different type of impeachment," said Reid.

"It absolutely concerns me that we have a president who's putting his political interest ahead of the country... We need to know whats going on here," said Sen. Cortez Masto
