Lawmakers respond to impeachment inquiry into President Trump

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today issued the below statement following House Democrats’ official impeachment inquiry announcement:

 

“West Virginians have made it clear to me time and time again that they would rather Congress focus on the issues that truly affect their day-to-day lives—not political and partisan theatrics. Earlier this afternoon, in good faith, the president said he is willing to release the ‘complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript,’ and I applaud that decision. Moving forward with an impeachment inquiry before that transcript is even public proves that House Democrats are more interested in partisan politics than in following the facts.”

 

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Miller (WV-3) released the following statement after Speaker Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump:

 

“Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have once again proven they are willing to stop at nothing to discredit the 2016 election and take down President Trump by any means necessary. It’s time for Washington liberals to stop playing politics and embrace the success of the Trump Administration.

 

I encourage my colleagues across the aisle to repurpose this misguided impeachment effort and work with House Republicans to grow our economy, end the opioid epidemic, and solve the crisis on our Southern border. I stand with our President.”
