On June 13, Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15) called for the opening of an impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump. “President Trump’s admission yesterday that he would listen to and potentially take a foreign power’s offer of ‘dirt’ on a political opponent rather than report it to the FBI is a brazen disregard for our rule of law, a betrayal of our nation, and an invitation to our adversaries to attack us once again,” said Swalwell, a member of the House Judiciary Committee. “We must stop this lawless President from tearing down our democracy.”

“Impeachment is the most extraordinary remedy the Constitution affords Congress," Swalwell continued. "As a former prosecutor, I do not take this lightly. But this President continues to put his own interests above America’s; he is lawless. His relentless attacks on our rule of law and numerous efforts to obstruct justice and Congress have reached such a point to require extraordinary action. It’s time for Congress to open an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump."
