“All Washington House Democrats join chorus supporting impeachment inquiry”
- Editor’s note: After reading a majority of The Mueller Report followed by Mr. Mueller’s testimony last week, I had written to Rep. Heck supporting an indictment via impeachment proceedings for President Trump, as outlined in the Constitution of the United States. I am elated to learn of Rep. Heck’s decision announced earlier today.

“Four Western Washington Democrats in Congress, including Denny Heck and Derek Kilmer, announced Sunday [July 28] they will support a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s dealings with Russia before the 2016 election and with the investigation that followed.
“That means all seven of the state’s Democratic members of Congress are now in favor of an impeachment inquiry, since Reps. Pramila Jayapal, Rick Larsen, and Adam Smith already had voiced their support. Nationally, about 100 in Congress had supported such a move, although the numbers were increasing Sunday.
“‘I support initiation of an impeachment inquiry by the House Judiciary Committee and will support measures to accomplish this when Congress returns to Washington, D.C.,’ said Heck, the 10th District representative from Olympia, in a statement on Sunday [July 28],” quoting Rolf Boone, The Olympian.
