But in America, you're supposed to have evidence of a crime, before investigating specific individuals.
Actually, you need 'probable cause' or 'reason to believe'.

Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib joined with protesters today to say she'd introduce a resolution this month urging the Judiciary Committee to move forward with impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
Tlaib, D-Mich., joined protesters on Capitol Hill to described what she called an “emergency” conveyed to her by her constituents.
