1313 Line Impeachment Inquiry

September 27, 2019 – This week, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi officially announced an impeachment inquiry for President Donald Trump.

Xochitl Torres Small is playing her cards close to the vest. Host Gene Grant and The Line opinion panelists talk about what role our congressional delegation should play in any impeachment proceedings, and what the impact of all this might be heading into an election year in 2020.

Just about an hour before, the state Democratic Party held a counter-rally at Tiguex Park in downtown Albuquerque, featuring Congressman Ben Ray Lujan, Congresswoman Deb Haaland, Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver and Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller.
