Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) today released the following statement regarding the President's most recent attempts to defy Congress regarding oversight of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. Mitt Romney, a prominent anti-Trump Republican, said he and Amash didn't come to the same conclusions.
Yarmuth said he is fine if Democrats don't rush into opening an impeachment inquiry right now because Congress is investigating problems with Trump that go far beyond what's detailed in Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, like his financial dealings and potential violation of the emoluments clause.
Pelosi also reminded Democrats that they had just received a court "victory" earlier that day when a left-wing judge ruled in favor of the House Oversight Committee's demands to see Trump's financial records. Trump will have a chance to make his case to supporters on Monday at a rally planned for Montoursville, Pa. In addition, his recent comments that there was "spying" by law enforcement on the 2016 Trump campaign and his decision to appoint a USA attorney to investigate the origins of that Federal Bureau of Investigation probe - a move Trump has long called for - has sparked outrage from Democrats and longtime law enforcement officials as a politically motivated intimidation tactic.
The California Democrat said none of his colleagues are happy that this is where things have ended up, but they can't ignore the ongoing obstruction of the administration.
"While impeachment should be undertaken only in extraordinary circumstances", he tweeted, saying that unlike many of his colleague he had read the 448-page report in full, "the risk we face in an environment of extreme partisanship is not that Congress will employ it as a remedy too often but rather that Congress will employ it so rarely that it can not deter misconduct". Pelosi and her allies complain the anti-Trump fervor is overwhelming Democratic messaging on their agenda, and claim that most of the rank and file is against the move. "But it did not suggest to me that this was time to call for impeachment". Both were acquitted by the Senate.
Amash continued to reaffirm his stance on Twitter Monday morning.

Derby came to give during the second half and totally dominated Marcelo Bielsa's side. "I think they're all nice guys, there are no leaders out there", he told talkSPORT.
During this meeting, Cohen reportedly said former President Bill Clinton faced impeachment "over sex" and that Trump is "raping the country".
House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy on Fox News questioned whether Amash really belongs among GOP congressmen. Some Democrats wants the House to open impeachment hearings, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has resisted, saying impeachment must be bipartisan.
Amash has been in Congress since 2011 and has faced only one serious primary challenge since then.
But in 2018, when Republicans still controlled the chamber, CQ Roll Call found he was the second most likely to oppose the Republican position on votes, after North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones, who died in February.
"But I think it'll be important to show the American people, this was a decision made reluctantly, this was a decision forced upon us, rather than something we were eager to embrace" Schiff said.
