BOISE, Idaho — Congressional lawmakers from Idaho responded Tuesday after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

Pelosi made the announcement Tuesday from the speaker's office at the Capitol saying "no one is above the law" and that the president "must be held accountable."

Calls for an impeachment inquiry have intensified following reports that Trump may have sought a foreign government's help in his reelection bid. Trump insists he has done nothing wrong. 

Here's how Idaho's congressional delegation reacted to the announcement:

Rep. Russ Fulcher (R-Idaho):

"Since the day President Trump was elected to office, this has been the democrats' strategy. They can't win in the arena of ideas or in superiority of candidates, so the obstruction continues—tax returns, the Mueller investigation, a fake dossier, the absence of collusion, election interference, and now it's a whistleblower report. In the meantime, the work of the people remains on hold."
