‘I support an impeachment inquiry’

1st District of New Mexico

In a statement on Aug. 14, Congresswoman Deb Haaland, D-N.M., expressed her views about an impeachment investigation.

“From day one, President Trump has proven he’s unfit to serve as president. I can’t sit back while our communities live in fear because of this President,” Haaland said. He and his friends continue to enrich themselves and abuse their power while New Mexicans are struggling. Meanwhile, the President and his Administration stonewall Congress and refuse to cooperate with Congressional investigations; they are impeding the ability of Congress to get to the truth.

Robert Mueller said it plainly: ‘the special counsel’s report does not exonerate this President.’ Congress has a constitutional tool to shed light on what this Administration is hiding and to hold the President accountable,” Haaland continued. “This isn’t political. There is growing evidence of impeachable offenses and I believe we have a responsibility to defend our Constitution and our Democracy. We must move forward with an impeachment inquiry.  The President is not above the law.”
