Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV) told the Nevada Independent that he supports the House’s inquiry into whether President Trump should be impeached, but is withholding judgment on whether Trump has crossed the legal line…
The Nevada Republican dismissed the notion, raised by Trump, that the issue was raised by political enemies in the government looking for any reason to depose him. He noted that Trump has a reputation for coming out hard when he feels like he’s being attacked, but said the issue is one of law.
According to a list by the New York Times, Amodei would be the first Republican who has openly come out in favor of the inquiry. The list has 223 Democrats supporting the hearings.
Michigan Independent Congressman Justin Amash also supports the hearings. He said back in May that Trump had engaged in impeachable conduct which helped him decide to leave the Republican Party.
