In a brief filed to the Supreme Court, House Democrats confirmed on Monday that they are currently conducting another “presidential impeachment investigation” against President Donald Trump, according to Fox News.
The brief from the House Judiciary Committee, which is seeking unreleased grand jury materials from Robert Mueller’s failed investigation, claims that “the Committee’s investigation did not cease with the conclusion of the impeachment trial.”
“If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses,” the statement continued, “the committee will proceed accordingly – including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment.”
The brief did not elaborate on which alleged crimes the committee now believes President Trump may have committed. In the previous attempt, even after Mueller’s report ultimately exonerated President Trump of both charges of “collusion” with the Russian government and allegations of obstruction of justice, Democrats decided to move forward with impeachment anyway despite bipartisan opposition.
The House passed two articles of impeachment last year, with one being abuse of power and the other being obstruction of Congress. He was acquitted of both charges in the Senate.
