BREAKING: I've just learned that my own Congressman @RepEliotEngel, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and one of the senior Democrats in the House, will publicly support an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
@RepEliotEngel Engel is a close ally of Speaker Pelosi and one of the key Democratic committee chairs. I've known Eliot for years, respect his work immensely, and strongly support this decision.
@RepEliotEngel In a statement I've seen a preview of, Rep. Engel will say that "the American people want, and deserve, the truth…I believe the House must pursue a formal impeachment inquiry."
@RepEliotEngel Adds the Congressman: "The President’s repeated abuses have brought American democracy to a perilous crossroads. Following the guidance of the Constitution – which I have sworn to uphold – is the only way to achieve justice."
@RepEliotEngel My view: this is a major development in the advancement of the impeachment inquiry. Engel has been particularly aggressive in questioning Trump's tries to Putin, and interference in U.S. elections. A big domino!
