Congressman Price Supports Speaker Pelosi’s Decision to Formalize Impeachment Inquiry
WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 24, 2019) – Today, Tuesday, September 24, 2019, Congressman David Price (D-NC), issued a statement following Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that the U.S. House of Representatives will open an impeachment inquiry:
“I fully support Speaker Pelosi’s decision to move forward with an official impeachment inquiry. Reports of President Trump’s clear abuse of power—inviting a foreign government to target a political opponent – breaks his oath of office and threatens our national security and the independence of our elections. The Administration’s move to block a legally required release of the protected whistleblower complaint leaves Congress with no choice.
“Our democracy is at stake. Congress cannot ignore President Trump’s lawless behavior and continued stonewalling. We will use our full investigative powers to hear from witnesses, uncover the truth, and seek justice, as provided under the Constitution.”
