House Rep. Amodei becomes first Republican to support impeachment inquiry

Is the tide turning, or is this just a case of letting the facts speak for themselves?

As the constant barrage of anti-Trump sentiment continues to roil the halls of Congress, perhaps this was only a matter of time.

For days on end, the American political world has been in upheaval, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launch of a “formal impeachment inquiry” into President Donald Trump.  At the heart of the issue is a phone call between Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump made undue “promises” to the European leader – all of the according to a secondhand whistleblower, of course.

In the wake of this announcement by Pelosi, other leaks have emanated from the White House as well, all of which have yet to be corroborated by the facts.

Amid this tirade of anti-Trump tidbits, some Republicans are finding themselves shook.

Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nev., on Friday became the first House Republican to express support for Congress’ impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

“I’m a big fan of oversight, so let’s let the committees get to work and see where it goes,”  he said in a conference call with reporters, according to The Hill.

Amodei made it clear, however, that he’s not hoping that the President is impeached – only that an investigation is conduced properly.

“Using government agencies to, if it’s proven, to put your finger on the scale of an election, I don’t think that’s right,” Amodei added. “If it turns out that it’s something along those lines, then there’s a problem.”

But he cautioned he was “in no way, shape, or form” indicating “support for impeachment,” The Hill reported.

Amodei finds himself in the company of a pair of Republican governors, as well as Senators Ben Sasse and Mitt Romney, who have all shown a willingness to play along with the Democrats on this matter.
