Democrat Representative Eric Swalwell, who serves on both the Judiciary and Intel Committees has apparently signaled that he is not sold on impeachment after previously stating that President Trump should be impeached.

According to The Daily Caller:

California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell on Tuesday said he has not made a decision yet about whether President Donald Trump should be impeached, after previously calling for his impeachment.

Swalwell’s comments come after House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff declined to say whether or not he supports impeaching Trump and his removal from office by the Senate. In November, Swalwell said on Twitter “I am one of them. I called for impeachment the day @realDonaldTrump told @GStephanopoulos he would again take help from a foreign government to win an election. That was June. Little did any of us know he was already trying to do that with Ukraine.”

 

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released their report on Tuesday regarding the impeachment inquiry into President Trump

The 123-page report, which was written by Republican staffers of the House Intelligence, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs panels, says that the evidence provided by Democrats is not enough to impeach the president and called the Democrats’ continued efforts to impeach Trump  “an orchestrated campaign to upend our political system,” Roll Call reported.

The White House has declined to take part in the Democrat's impeachment hearings despite being invited to attend.
