If anyone thinks Democrat lawmakers — during the next two weeks of congressional recess — will be taking time off from their push toward the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump, they’ve got another think coming.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), for one, has already announced his first “impeachment town hall” for constituents in his district in the days ahead.

A former candidate for the 2020 Democratic nomination who quit that race in July, Swalwell is a member of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

“The president sought to use the powers of the United States government to pressure a foreign leader to investigate his political opponent — an abuse of office and a threat to national security,” Swalwell claimed in a statement.

“I want to update my constituents on what’s happening in Congress, and answer their questions about the path forward,” he also said.
