Impeach Trump? Khanna says, ask Nancy

At least two of Alameda County’s congressional caucus are readily identified as stalwart progressives. But Reps. Ro Khanna and Barbara Lee are nowhere near leading the push by many Democrats to bring forth articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Instead, Khanna, Lee, and Swalwell are deferring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s determination that impeachment could irreparably divide the country, while suggesting other avenues exist for holding Trump accountable for the misconduct laid out last week in the Mueller Report.

“There’s only one person who matters. Nancy Pelosi,” Khanna told Fox News last Friday. “She sets the agenda for House Democrats. Every member of Congress has an opinion, but Nancy Pelosi is going to set the agenda and she has said, ‘Let’s let Mueller testify. Let have the committees gather evidence and do their work.’ But it’s premature to be making any other judgments.”

Swalwell called impeachment an “extraordinary remedy,” also on Fox News. Lee has been less vocal on the issue, but has also advocated for following Pelosi’s lead.

Their stance comes in stark contrast to calls recently to impeach Trump by freshman progressives such as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar.
