U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan says she would back House Democrats if they launch an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

The fourth-term Democrat said in a written statement Monday that former special counsel Robert Mueller's report about Russian interference in the 2016 election "describes extremely serious instances of the president of the United States trying to obstruct justice." She says "no one is above the law."

Politico first reported Stabenow's position.

The lone Republican calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment has quit an influential caucus of House conservatives.

A spokeswoman for Michigan Rep. Justin Amash confirmed on Tuesday that he had resigned from the Freedom Caucus. Amash is one of the group's founders, but it is now controlled by Trump's allies.

A newly-sworn in congresswoman from Michigan is continuing her call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.

U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib wrote in an Op-Ed published by the Detroit Free Press that the president is a “direct and serious threat to our country.”

Tlaib then used an expletive to describe Trump in a meeting with supporters during her first official day in Congress.

Tlaib vowed to oust the President in her campaign for Michigan’s 13th Congressional District.
