As details of the investigation report compiled by Special Counsel Robert Mueller continue to be dissected and made public, top House Democrats have come out to say that they will decide on whether or not they will pursue impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
The report, which was first released last month, found that while there was no vindication for the president on his corruption charge, there was also no definitive proof that he collaborated with the Kremlin to influence the 2016 presidential elections.
However, while the White House celebrated a victory in a corruption battle that has gone on for the better part of the current administration, more details of the report were released last week, and it has been speculated that the president did make attempts to influence and impede the progress of the investigation.
The report also claimed that trump and his campaign welcomed Russian help, including collecting stolen emails from top Democrats and circulating fake news about his opponent Hilary Clinton.
The actions detailed have been called into question, with various parties providing interpretations as to whether the president’s actions were truly grounds for impeachment.
On April 21, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerold Nadler (D-NY) said, “Obstruction of justice, if proven, would be impeachable.” He also added that he would like to see where the fact lead.
Still, a major issue with impeachment comes in the divided state of the American government. An impeachment proceedings would require agreement between the Democrat-led house and the Republican-led Senate; something which, for the time being, is incredibly unlikely.
