Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told reporters that she planned to introduce a resolution of investigation within the next 48 hours that could very well be the start of the impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

“Today, in the next 48 hours I’ll be introducing a resolution of investigation. The opening comments in that resolution [say] that the Judiciary Committee will investigate whether sufficient grounds exist for the House Representatives to exercise the power by Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5 of the Constitution in respect to acts of impeachment of the President of the United States,” Jackson Lee said.

“We believe and continue to believe that we are doing the right thing by investigating. And that our task is to educate before we activate, and that is what we will do,” Jackson Lee said. “But I believe it is important for the American people to know that nothing we have done is a target against anyone.”

Jackson Lee’s made her announcement after former White House counsel Don McGahn decided to skip a hearing with the House Judiciary Committee at the urging of Trump.
