WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKBW) — Congressman Brian Higgins is calling for the House of Representatives to being an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

In a statement, Higgins says, "Obstruction of justice is an impeachable offense. The multiple instances of obstruction laid out in the Mueller report necessitate that the House launch an impeachment inquiry." He went on to say the President has "stonewalled every Congressional request and forbid government employees from complying with congressional subpoenas."

Over the course of American history, the House has begun impeachment proceedings 60 times, and voted to impeach two presidents.
