‘I’ve got a problem with these people’: Arizona lawmaker calls for impeachment

Arizona’s congressional delegation is demanding an investigation into a former state lawmaker who they say is being used by Donald Trump’s campaign to illegally influence Arizona voters.

The Arizona Republican, Raul Grijalva, said the investigation is an attack on democracy, which has never been higher.

“I’ve seen a pattern, a pattern of political interference in the election, and that pattern is now coming out in Arizona, and it’s been a pattern for a long time,” Grijadva said Thursday.

“And I’m going to make it clear: I will not tolerate it.”

The former Arizona state senator was named to the Senate Rules Committee in 2018 after he was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in a landslide.

He is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Natural Resources.

In the last legislative session, he voted against legislation that would have allowed local governments to require proof of citizenship before issuing a business license.

The committee voted 5-1 to hold Grijajalva on an impeachment investigation for using his position as a lawmaker to influence voters.

Grijalda is running in 2018 against Rep. David Schweikert, who was re-elected to a second term in 2018.

“The evidence we have shows that Mr. Grizajalvas role in the campaign was not only to help elect Mr. Trump, but to help create a climate that led voters to support Mr. Schweikard’s candidacy,” said Arizona Republican Party Chairman Mike Lee.

“We’re not going to tolerate that.

We’re not willing to stand for it.”

Grijaldas campaign manager, Jonathan Johnson, said Grijavalda “has been a supporter of Arizona since day one.”

He said his campaign is investigating Grijafldas use of his office to lobby against the Arizona Constitution, a measure that would bar the state from enforcing federal immigration laws.

Grijoaldas spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

The former senator, a Democrat, also is being investigated for his role in a corruption investigation in which he was investigated for allegedly misappropriating funds and receiving bribes.

Grimaldi was accused of using a private investigator to dig up dirt on several political candidates, including Arizona Senate Majority Leader Michael Garza.

He was charged with embezzling $10,000 from the investigation.

He pleaded guilty and is serving a 10-month sentence.

Garza was elected in a stunning upset in 2018 and has served in the state House of Representative since 2006.
