Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.) is the first House Republican to support an impeachment inquiry following a whistleblower's complaint that President Trump allegedly pressured Ukraine, reports the New York Times.

"Listen, I want to see what the process produces. And quite frankly, if there's something that rises to that level, then guess what, that's not something that we can have by a Democrat or a Republican."
— Rep. Mark Amodei during a conference call

Between the lines: Amodei has not come out in support of impeachment. He supports Congress looking into the complaint made by the whistleblower to see what's credible, according to a press release from Amodei.

  • Other Democrats echo Amodei's message. They want to wait and see what the impeachment inquiries will dig up before moving forward, per the Times.

The massive losses in oil prices and U.S. and European equities were not countered by gains in traditional safe-haven assets on Wednesday.

Why it matters: The unusual movement in typical hedging tools like bonds, precious metals and currencies means they are not providing investors an asset that will appreciate in the event of a major equity selloff.
