Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) did a 180 when it comes to the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

After calling for an impeachment inquiry in June, Swalwell has now hesitated when it comes to making a decision.

Swalwell explained to CNN’s Manu Raju “that it’s important that we reserve judgment.”

The congressman said, though, that the Democratic House Intelligence Committee’s “report has powerful overwhelming evidence” against Trump. He also claimed the inquiry “is one of the largest investigations ever in America that relied on the fewest amount of documents.”

Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff released his report on Tuesday, which claimed the investigation “uncovered a months-long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.”

Schiff maintained that Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky included a threat to withhold aid if the Ukrainian government did not investigate 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Vice President Joe Biden.

When Swalwell entered the presidential race he became one of the most vocal members of Congress for impeachment.

Swalwell strongly supported impeachment as recently as mid-November.
