Despite the Mueller report summary stating that there was not enough evidence to indict President Donald Trump on collusion with Russia in the 2016 election campaign, Rep. Rashida Tlaib has sent a letter to her Democratic colleagues requesting that they sign a resolution urging the House Judiciary Committee to probe if Trump has committed any impeachable offenses, National Review reported on Tuesday.

The Michigan representative, who previously broke with Democratic leadership in calling for an inquiry specifically aimed at finding out if Trump committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” and vowed to “impeach the mother****r” in her election night speech, said in her letter sent Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller did not adequately explore the possibility of impeachable offenses.

In the letter, obtained by Business Insider, Tlaib wrote that “The actions of President Trump before he was officially sworn in… is currently being investigated by the Southern District of New York and much of it is part of the completed report by... Mueller. However, the most dangerous threat to our democracy is President Trump’s actions since taking the oath of office.”

She then went on to argue that an additional impeachment-focused investigation is needed, because the ongoing Congressional probes looking into Trump’s personal financial history and his family business operations are insufficient.

Tlaib specifically mentioned three areas that should be explored: whether the president’s ongoing ties to his family businesses violates the foreign emoluments clause; whether his hush money payment reimbursements to Michael Cohen violate federal election law; and whether the president obstructed justice by firing former FBI director James Comey.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has dismissed the possibility of impeachment without bipartisan support as an divisive move that would prove counter-productive for Democrats in 2020.
