Pressure is growing on Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to endorse the start of impeachment proceedings against President Trump as the idea gains support from his leadership, including several of the Senate’s most influential women.
The third- and fourth-ranking Senate Democratic leaders, Sens. Patty Murray (Wash.) and Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), are now both backing an inquiry into Trump’s possible impeachment.
Murray, the assistant Senate Democratic leader, announced her position on Sunday and a day later said she has seen enough evidence to warrant impeachment proceedings.
“What we know from the Mueller report is deeply concerning and the president has been not responding to subpoenas and to requests for information,” said Murray, who usually flies under the news media’s radar.
