WILLITS, 9/25/19 -- Well the day has finally arrived. After months and years of hemming-and-hawing over whether or not to impeach President Donald Trump, House Speak Nancy Pelosi is moving ahead and has opened up an "impeachment inquiry."
Just to be clear, we try to stick to local news here at The Mendocino Voice, but we also believe in relaying some of the opinions and actions of our specific congressman, Jared Huffman, to our readers. We also take no stance on the impeachment inquiry, or the actions or opinions of the congressman, we are just relaying his statement to the voters of Mendocino County.
Rep. Huffman Statement on Impeachment Inquiry
Washington, D.C.- Representative Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) issued the following statement tonight, following Speaker Pelosi’s announcement of an official impeachment inquiry:
“I have long believed that President Trump’s obstruction of justice, conflicts of interest, and contempt for the rule of law amounted to high crimes and misdemeanors as described in the Constitution. But his efforts to coerce the government of Ukraine into helping his reelection campaign, and his work to cover up a whistleblower’s credible and urgent report, clearly undermines our system of checks and balances and represents a historic tipping point. Tonight we held a unifying and decisive caucus meeting where members from all corners of our caucus agreed that the House must move forward with an impeachment inquiry. I strongly support this important and historic decision, and will keep working with my colleagues to hold President Trump accountable.”The office of Representative Jared Huffman
