Rep. Dean: ‘Enough Is Enough,’ We Should Start an Impeachment Inquiry

‘When we issue lawful subpoenas for the constitutional oversight we ought to be doing, and they are ignored, blocked, thwarted by this administration’

EXCERPT:

DEAN: "They have picked up pace. I’m a big fan of Katie Porter. I serve with her on Financial Services, maybe you've watched her work there, she’s pretty doggone sharp. And we're doing important oversight in financial services, as well as substantive legislation. The conversations have picked up. And maybe particularly with those of us who are on judiciary. I’ve had colleagues either call me on the telephone or stop me on the floor, as we’re involved in voting, and say what’s going on? Why is it that you made the shift a couple of weeks ago now to say that we should call for an impeachment inquiry? And the thing that I say is that I feel on judiciary that we are foot soldiers and then when we issue lawful subpoenas for the constitutional oversight we ought to be doing and they are ignored, blocked, thwarted by this Administration, by this President, by this Attorney General, enough is enough and I believe we should start an impeachment inquiry."
