House Republican on Support for Impeachment: ‘In No Way, Shape, or Form Did I Indicate Support for Impeachment’: A Republican Congressman who was widely reported to have said he supported impeachment issued a statement clarifying his position.
Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nevada) told reporters on a conference call on Sept. 27 that he supports Congressional oversight of President Donald Trump but does not necessarily support impeachment.
“Let’s put it through the process and see what happens. I’m a big fan of oversight, so let’s let the committees get to work and see where it goes,” he said.
“Using government agencies to, if it’s proven, to put your finger on the scale of an election, I don’t think that’s right. If it turns out that it’s something along those lines, then there’s a problem.”
Some Democrats seized on the comments, claiming Amodei said he supported impeachment.
