More Democrats, Including Oregon’s Bonamici, Seeking Impeachment Proceedings Against Trump
WASHINGTON — More Democrats are calling — and more loudly — for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump after his latest defiance of Congress by blocking his former White House lawyer from testifying.
Rep. Suzanne Bonamici of Oregon is among them. She said Wednesday that the House of Representatives should start an impeachment inquiry.
“I am gravely concerned about the actions of President Trump and the growing evidence of possible impeachable offenses, including obstruction of justice, committing human rights violations by separating children from their families, and profiting from the presidency," Bonamici said in a statement. “I’ve said before that impeachment should be an option, but we must approach it deliberately. The time has come.”
