Top Democratic lawmakers weighed the possibility of pursuing impeachment actions against President Donald Trump in response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in a series of Sunday television appearances. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff of California said Democrats would meet in the next few weeks to discuss impeachment based on the report’s “serious and damning” findings. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York said obstruction of justice “would be impeachable” but only “if proven.” Democrats are still divided on if pursuing impeachment would be worthwhile for the party.  Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories.

Top Democrats said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his two-year investigation could open the door to impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

The release of the 448-page report on the investigation into Trump’s campaign and the 2016 presidential election reopened impeachment discussions among Democrats as figures like 2020 candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren called for action from congressional committees. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
