Is Harley Rouda in Favor of Impeaching Donald Trump
Is Nancy Pelosi losing a grip on the Democrat caucus? Is the wing shouting for Trump’s head on a platter going to win? Is Harley Rouda (D-Laguna Beach) one of those members?
Congressman Rouda had some major mentions in Politico and The Atlantic quoting him as playing footsy with the idea of moving forward with impeaching the President.
“The public wants us to do our job, which we are, but it also includes continuing our investigation, and the more the Trump administration and the president defies Congress’ constitutional law, the more we’re seeing increasing demand for Congress to take action,” Rep. Harley Rouda a Democrat who flipped a longtime Republican seat in Orange County, Calif., in 2018, told POLITICO.
Days later, Rouda went further during an interview on MSNBC, saying he thinks Democrats should “draw a line in the sand.”
“Either honor the subpoenas and the request for documentation by this date, or we will move towards impeachment proceedings,” Rouda said Sunday.”
From The Atlantic:
“Some lawmakers may be finding that an impeachment inquiry would more effectively bring their oversight muscle to bear. Representative Harley Rouda, a moderate House Democrat who flipped a longtime Republican seat in Orange County, California, in 2018, told me that he wants to give Trump officials one final chance to fulfill Congress’s requests, but that “if they fail to comply by [a certain] date, then I do think we should start the proceedings.”
