Nevada's Amodei Critical Of Impeachment Call

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada's lone Republican in Washington says he does not support the start of an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump and is criticizing his Democratic counterparts for calling for such a move because of the president's actions toward Ukraine.

Hours after Democrats Susie Lee and Steven Horsford said they'd support starting impeachment if Trump's administration continues to block the release of a whistleblower complaint, U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei said the Democrats were making the president's actions "an issue" before the House Intelligence Committee or any other committee met to discuss it.

Amodei said he would wait to respond to Trump's actions until some kind of investigation has taken place in Congress.
