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. Two of New Mexico’s congressional delegation are on the record supporting impeachment proceedings: Ben Ray Lujan and Deb Haaland. But, the state’s 2nd Congressional District Rep. 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.
