Dear Editor:

More than 100 members of Congress now support opening an impeachment inquiry. That number has grown daily since Robert Mueller testified before Congress [July 24, 2019].

For anyone who missed it, Mueller made it clear that he did not exonerate President Trump. Not in his report, and not in his testimony. His investigation found damning criminal activity and has already led to 37 indictments, and at least seven guilty pleas or convictions. Mueller said his investigation uncovered over 100 secret communications between the Trump campaign and Russia or people working with Russia, and at least 10 episodes of obstruction of justice.

Obstruction of justice is a crime, plain and simple.

During Mueller’s testimony, Rep. Ted Lieu asked: “The reason you did not indict Donald Trump was is because of an OLC opinion stating that you cannot indict a sitting representative, correct?” Mueller responded: “That is correct.” If anyone else did what Trump did, they’d be in jail.

I want to see Congress take action to hold Trump accountable. Trump should abide by the same standards as any other American.

No one is above the law in our country, especially not the president. That’s why I’m calling on our representative and the rest of Congress to open a formal impeachment inquiry now!
