Early Impeachment Papers Filed Against Donald Trump
Congressman takes the first step towards impeachment
So what does this all mean?
A “resolution of inquiry” is a request for information from the executive branch. Congressman Nadler has made his request for two things specifically –any communications between President Trump and the Department of Justice as well as more information regarding his business ties to Russia, which the President has vehemently denied.
Nadler offered the following statement in regard to his inquiry “Donald Trump has refused to step away from his business interests in any meaningful way. His foreign entanglements are likely unconstitutional, he has repeatedly refused to disclose his financial assets, and he is clouded by the specter of Russian intervention in the election and his Administration.”
While this isn’t exactly the straight-forward process most of us have been hoping for, it’s a step in the right direction as Congressman Nadler’s findings can be used be a broader call to impeachment.
