Ruppersberger Issues Statement on Impeachment Investigation
(WASHINGTON, DC) — Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger released the following statement after members of the House Judiciary Committee marked up a resolution representing the next steps in its investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment against President Trump:
“It appears to me that Trump has committed impeachable offenses. This includes apparent violations of the emoluments clause, obstructing the Mueller investigation, refusing to comply with Congressional subpoenas and so on. Now, we must prove it by building a case using facts and evidence. The case must transcend politics.
Our forefathers created a system of checks and balances among the Administration, Congress and the Courts. It is Congress’ job to hold the President accountable. In addition to investigations underway by five other House Committees, I support the Judiciary’s plan to formalize an impeachment investigation and I look forward to seeing the results. No one is above the law.”
