Dem Rep. Khanna on Calls for Trump Impeachment: 'Nancy Pelosi Sets the Agenda'
House Democrat Ro Khanna (Calif.) said Friday it's "reasonable" for Democrats to demand to see the full, unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.
Earlier Friday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) issued a subpoena for the "complete and unredacted" version of Mueller's report, as well as the underlying materials.
Nadler has claimed that the committee needs to see the full report and the underlying evidence in order to determine any further action against the president or his associates.
In response to Mueller's findings, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Thursday she would support the impeachment resolution of fellow freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib (Mich.).
Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President.
It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution.

Nadler has not ruled out impeachment.
Asked by Sandra Smith whether he backs impeachment proceedings, Khanna said the decision is up to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said recently that Trump is "just not worth it" when it comes to potential removal from office.
"There's only one person who matters, Nancy Pelosi. She sets the agenda for House Democrats," he said, adding that Pelosi first wants to call Mueller to testify before Congress.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Thursday "impeachment is not worthwhile" after the release of the Mueller report, though he appeared to backtrack later in the day.
