Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, the statement on the next steps after the Müller -.

Assistant to House Speaker Ben Ray Luján, D-N. M., on Monday, the highest-ranking Democrat in the house was to support, to call for moving forward with impeachment proceedings against President Trump, trump, is “abdicating its responsibility for the defense of our nation from the Russian attacks.”

With this, Luján, the house is Democrat, the fourth-ranking, breaking with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s long-held position of not pursuing impeachment.


“I support moving forward with an indictment request, which is also said to reveal the facts for the American people and hold the President accountable,” Luján said in a statement. “This is not the position that I have achieved easily.”

The members of Congress from New Mexico quotes Trump’s response to the Russian interference in the election of 2016, and threats to repeat the attack in the year 2020 as contributing factors.

“Numerous experts have warned that these attacks are ongoing to this day. And if in the light of this evidence, which has, by its own government, President, Trump failed,” Luján said. “Not only has he the warnings that our democracy is attacked, but he has also actively promoted Russian interference ignored.”

Luján is the support of 125 house Democrats publicly, a law-enforcement investigation of trump, in the light of the results of former special counsel Robert Müller Russia investigation, as detailed in his report. An independent, Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, also supported a law enforcement probe.

Luján statement expresses its support for “moving forward with a prosecution request,” even if House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., insisted that one of them was already in the corridor, after he filed a court petition seeking secret grand jury material, from Russia probe. Rep. Ted Deutsch, D-Fla., went so far as to claim, in an Aug. 1 piece for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that an impeachment request has been running for the 4. March.

Republicans, including House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins, meanwhile, insist that it is impossible for it to authorize, no indictment request without a full House author a a vote. Some Democrats insisted that such a vote is unnecessary, says a study, which is inherent power in the house is the constitutional impeachment. English pointed to the extensive powers enjoyed by the Congress committees.


Whether or not the existing house effort is officially a law enforcement investigation is more than just semantics. For Nadler, the secret “grand jury” material of Mueller’s investigation, he must show that his situation falls under one of the specified situations described by the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. During the investigation of President Richard Nixon, a court judgment determined that the impeachment investigations fall under the category of “judicial proceedings” and thus qualifying for the disclosure of the secret information.
