Pelosi: Bipartisan Support Not Yet There for Impeachment

Pelosi: Bipartisan Support Not Yet There for Impeachment

When a sizable minority of (mostly moderate) Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee voted for recommending impeachment against Republican President Richard Nixon in 1974, his approval rating was hovering around 50% among Republicans in Gallup polling.

The attorney general has also defended the Trump administration's broad refusals to comply with Congressional subpoenas seeking more information from the White House on a host of topics. "No" for voting against some Republican legislation.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) faces a Republican challenger after calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, the MI congressman said attempts to obstruct justice as outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election amounted to "impeachable conduct". It examined whether the Trump presidential campaign participated in Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, and whether Trump obstructed justice in efforts to investigate it. Pelosi and Reps. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico, Hakeem Jeffries of NY and Cheri Bustos of IL - some of her key allies - rejected their calls, saying Democrats' message is being drowned out by the fight over possibly impeaching Trump.

Justin Amash, the lone Republican to call for President Donald Trump's impeachment, is an outlier. Specificially, Amash tweeted, the findings identify "multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice". In fact, back in February he co-sponsored an action, alongside House Democrats, attempting to block President Trump's national emergency declaration along the southern border.

During this meeting, Cohen reportedly said former President Bill Clinton faced impeachment "over sex" and that Trump is "raping the country". "Personally I think he's not much".

While the hotel takeover is the company's biggest marketing event to date, Taco Bell has been reinventing itself for years. The hotel and resort will also reportedly feature a "not-to-miss gift shop", which will offer exclusive apparel.

Amash's call was also officially condemned by his allies in the Freedom Caucus, a powerful rightist grouping of Republican members of Congress.

The sentiment of the caucus is hard to judge in terms of whether a majority supports moving forward with an impeachment inquiry or not.

Amash was back on Twitter Monday afternoon, defending himself with 10 more tweets against people who contend there are no underlying crimes so the president could not have meant to illegally obstruct the investigation, and therefore cannot be impeached.

Amash, who represents Michigan's 3rd congressional district, wrote that he had read Mueller's full redacted report, but that few members of Congress had. In a telephone interview later in the day, Lower said, "Most Republican Party primary voters support the president and want a congressman that would work with him to get his agenda done".

Amash was elected in 2010 as part of the tea party wave that toppled Democratic control.

The libertarian opposed Trump's primary campaign and in the past couple years close observers believe he has grown frustrated with the caucus's leadership, including Trump loyalist Mark Meadows, the chairman of the caucus, and Jim Jordan, another founding HFC member and chairman emeritus. He vowed to explain all his votes, and to never miss one.
