Dem Rep: No, Most of My Constituents Aren't Talking About Impeachment

Democratic Chief Deputy Whip Dan Kildee (D-MI) is not completely committed to impeaching the president. He made that rather clear on Fox News Thursday morning just a couple of hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced they'd be moving forward on the inquiry.

Whenever he goes home, he discovers that the inquiry just doesn't have the public support that it does on Capitol Hill. What his constituents would rather see, Kildee revealed, is some progress on more pressing items.

"Mostly I hear they want us to work on issues like the prescription drug prices and trade, and the economy," he said. "Mostly the American people want us to work on the issues that affect them at the kitchen table every day."

Kildee said he supports Pelosi's decision to move forward on impeachment because he's concerned by a few elements like Trump's Ukraine requests and his apparent attempt to "obstruct" their investigation. But, he'll wait to see what's in the articles of impeachment before deciding how to vote.

“I’m really going to withhold judgment on any of that,” he said. “This is a moment we have to be very clear, but also cautious to not get ahead of ourselves. I want to see what those articles include.”

Instead of holding yet more hearings and talking to more witnesses who had nothing to do with the Ukraine phone call, why don't he and his colleagues get to work on a few of those policy items he mentioned? USMCA? Just a thought.
