People tend to forget that five Democrats voted for three of the four articles of impeachment against Bill Clinton. He said the report "identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence".
The senator said that he was surprised to see Michigan Congressman Justin Amash, a Republican, openly say that Trump's conduct met "the threshold for impeachment". Barr later said there was insufficient evidence to bring obstruction charges against Trump.
"I think the President every day gives grounds for impeachment in terms of his obstruction of justice", Pelosi said on Thursday, condemning the White House for not complying with Democratic subpoenas.
Representative Justin Amash, an iconoclastic Republican of MI who has considered a run against President Trump in 2020, became the first member of his party serving in Congress to publicly suggest that the president's conduct had reached the "threshold of impeachment".
In February Amash became the lone Republican to co-sponsor a resolution in the US House of Representatives to reject the emergency Trump declared at the U.S. -Mexico border to build a wall there, in a stinging rebuke to the president.

Mueller found no criminal conspiracy between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation, but left open the question of whether Trump obstructed the investigation.
"After what happened on Saturday, it just made sense to get in right away and make sure people in the community knew there was a pro-Trump conservative ready to take him on", Lower said to the Detroit News.
When Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, testified before a House committee in February, most Republicans dismissed him as a convicted liar. "He must be replaced and I am going to do it", Lower added.
But Romney was not ready to join fellow Republican Justin Amash, who said the president 'engaged in actions that meet the thresh hold for impeachment. He is the first Republican member of Congress to do so.
Mr Hoyer told CNN that impeachment would not be "worthwhile". But, he said he still expected Amash to be re-elected again to Congress next year. Amash is the only Republican to have called for the president's impeachment. "We may follow with inherent contempt, and we may have to follow with impeachment".
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has cautioned against moving too quickly, noting that the Republican-controlled Senate would likely acquit the president should the House of Representatives impeach him.
