As the movement in Congress to impeach President Donald Trump continues to grow, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is considering starting a select committee to focus the investigations into President Donald Trump.
“As House Democrats find themselves once more navigating the tricky politics of impeachment, a new idea is being floated by several members: creating a select panel of members that would handle those responsibilities,” The Daily Beast reported Monday evening. “A senior Democratic aide tells The Daily Beast that the idea of a select panel has ‘been raised by some members’ as a way to consolidate impeachment proceedings around Donald Trump.”
Multiple members came out in favor of impeachment on Monday, including seven national security Democrats who made the announcement in a joint op-ed and one member who did so live on TV.
Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) made her case on Twitter.
The corruption of this administration has no bottom. From using the Oval Office for self-enrichment, to welcoming foreign interference in our elections, TWICE — the level of lawlessness is staggering.
Our democracy needs defending, now more than ever.
I'm ready to impeach. https://t.co/C1m00v8Zzb
