Bonamici Applauds Pelosi’s Move to Begin Impeachment Inquiry
WASHINGTON, DC [9/24/19] – Today Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) applauded the decision of Speaker Nancy Pelosi to begin an impeachment inquiry.
"I commend Speaker Pelosi for moving forward with an impeachment inquiry,” said Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici. “The President admitted to asking a foreign government to investigate a political adversary. He must be held accountable for this impeachable offense, along with his many other wrongdoings that have betrayed the trust of the American people and undermined our democracy.
“Asking a foreign country to meddle in an upcoming election is a serious national security concern. Families, individuals, and communities across the U.S. need to have faith in their elections and deserve a president who has their best interest in mind, not someone who has repeatedly taken advantage of the Executive Office for personal gain. I am committed to working with the Speaker and my colleagues to advance an impeachment inquiry that will protect the American people and our national security."
Bonamici first came out in support of an impeachment inquiry in May. She has repeatedly reiterated her support for beginning an inquiry, including following the recent reports about Trump’s improper phone call with the President of Ukraine.
