Democrats urge impeachment proceedings

The majority of House Democrats do not support opening an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, but a growing minority are pressuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to do so. In late July, the House Judiciary Committee said in a court filing that it is actively considering articles of impeachment and seeks access to material redacted from the special counsel’s report in order to decide whether to move forward with the process.

Although a handful of Democrats have called for Mr. Trump’s impeachment for months or even years, many lawmakers are beginning to consider opening an impeachment inquiry against the president in light of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

While that investigation found that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia to influence the election, it did not exonerate the president of obstruction of justice. Mueller identified 11 instances of possible obstruction, but he made no determination on this, having concluded that doing so would not be in keeping with a legal opinion held by the Justice Department on the treatment of a sitting president. Attorney General William Barr determined the president did not commit obstruction of justice.

“As set forth in the report, after the investigation, if we had confidence that the president did not clearly commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller told reporters in a news conference in May. Under questioning by Congress, Mueller stood by the assessment of his report and reiterated that the president was not exonerated by it.
