The Washington Post reports:
House Democrats will hold a meeting to discuss whether to pursue impeachment proceedings against President Trump, a key lawmaker said Sunday. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) said on “Fox News Sunday” that the House Democratic caucus will meet in the coming weeks to discuss the matter.
“That’s going to be a very consequential decision and one that I’m going to reserve judgment on until we’ve had a chance to fully deliberate on it,” Schiff said. Democrats have been divided over impeachment since the Thursday release of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
