Case says impeachment inquiry timeline unclear
WASHINGTON - Members of Hawaii’s congressional delegation are demanding more answers as Democrats ramp up impeachment efforts against President Donald Trump.
U.S. Rep. Ed Case (D-Hawaii) tells KITV he wants the Inspector General’s report, and to hear from the whistleblower directly.
Case, a first-term Democrat – who previously served in Congress from 2002-2007 – said he never expected to have to consider impeaching a president when he returned to Congress this January. He also said he’s not sure how long this process could take.
“I don’t think any of us have the answer to that because we don’t know how wide or how deep this goes,” Case said. “We have to talk with a number of people. We have to follow up with a number of inquiries. We may have to go to court for a number of court orders that people produce.”
Congress breaks Friday for a two-week recess. It’s unclear if they could get called back sooner because of the impeachment inquiry, according to Case.
