Washington D.C. – Today, Rep. Madeleine Dean offered her views about President Trump’s ongoing conduct – and how Congress must respond.
“Given countless opportunities to work with Congress — a co-equal branch of government responsible for oversight on behalf of the American people — to get to the truth, President Trump and his Administration have obstructed justice over and over again, leaving us no choice: We must open an impeachment inquiry into the President of the United States.”
“The President’s outrageous disregard for the law – his cruel and constant corruption – cannot go unanswered. It will not go unanswered. The American people deserve the truth on the President’s ongoing obstruction of justice, corruption, and abuses of power. It is the right time for the committee to launch a formal impeachment inquiry – in parallel with ongoing oversight – to give that to them.”
“I take no pleasure in calling for this historic action, and yet I do so with an American sense of optimism — that our government of, by, and for the people is far stronger than a singularly amoral president.”
