After Mueller's report was released, the most prominent of the Democratic freshmen, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY, signed on to Tlaib's resolution calling for an investigation into Trump's conduct and the question of whether it merits a formal charge in the House.
The charge "high crimes" in the Constitution is a reference to misconduct that can only be committed by a person in a top level of authority because of the oath they took when assuming power; it does not necessarily refer to breaking the law.
U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Monday subpoenaed former White House Counsel Don McGahn for testimony following the special counsel's report that said McGahn refused President Donald Trump's request to curb or cut off the Russian Federation investigation.
Democratic House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings said on CBS television's "Face the Nation" that he could foresee possible impeachment proceedings against Trump, "but I'm not there yet". "We haven't had yet an opportunity to have hearings where we interview Mueller", Booker said during a campaign stop in Reno, Nevada.
The chances that this leads in the end to a farewell Trumps from the White house, are low.
In the wake of the Mueller report's release, Swalwell also has made numerous calls for Attorney General William Barr to resign, accusing him of favoring Trump and misrepresenting the special counsel's findings by stating there was "no evidence" of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, whose panel would spearhead any impeachment proceedings, said Democrats would press ahead with investigations of Trump in Congress and "see where the facts lead us."Obstruction of justice, if proven, would be impeachable", Nadler said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"The report makes clear that the facts and legal standards preclude the special counsel from exonerating the president of obstruction of justice", Foster said in the statement. According to special counsel Robert Mueller's report, McGahn was among the Trump aides who effectively halted the president's efforts to influence the investigation, rebuffing his demand to set Mueller's firing in motion.
Quinn said that he disagrees with tactics allegedly used by President Trump to end the investigation while it was being conducted previous year.
Mr Trump, who has repeatedly called the investigation a "witch hunt" has claimed vindication from Mr Mueller's report.
"I don't see any reason why it would be" Russia, Mr Trump said. "I don't think that report is fair".
On March 22, 2017, Trump asked then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats to stay behind after a meeting at the White House to ask if the men could "say publicly that no link existed between him and Russian Federation", the report said.
"We planned to do it if we needed to".
