On November 15, 2017, six of us stood and called for the impeachment of Donald Trump.
Today, our call continues, as we are now joined by more than 150 members calling for an impeachment inquiry into Trump.
We have a right to know, and as an original co-sponsor of the first resolution calling for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump, I reiterate my support for holding him accountable as he has consistently obstructed justice, violated the emoluments clause of the Constitution, and undermined the independence of our nation’s judicial system.
I have long believed that Donald Trump was unfit for the highest office in our land for a number of reasons. But I believe his latest mishandling of military funding, his attack on a whistleblower who recently came forward with information deemed credible by our intelligence community, and his use of the presidency for his own personal gain and political advantage, warrant a reiteration of my stance.
