CHICAGO (AP) – Donâ€™t call it impeachment, but a small and growing number of Republicans want the Democratic-run House investigation of President Donald Trump to proceed.
Several Republican congressmen say they want answers to questions about Trumpâ€™s dealings with Ukraineâ€™s president. By contrast, House GOP leaders have vigorously defended Trump and criticized Democrats as trying to undo the 2016 election.
Hereâ€™s what Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger says: “I want to know what happened.â€
But he and some others, including moderates in tight reelection races, say Democrats went too far by starting an impeachment inquiry.
Kinzinger says Democrats couldâ€™ve gotten answers â€œwithout raising the temperature as they have.â€
Washington Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler says “for the sake of this nation, we should all follow a process that does not put conclusions before facts.â€
