Rep. Demings Backs Impeachment
Washington, D.C. – Following Speaker Pelosi’s announcement of a full-blown impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Rep. Demings issued the following statement:
Said Rep. Demings, “Donald Trump took an oath to uphold the Constitution and to put the American people before his own personal gain. He has repeatedly broken that oath and abused the powers of his office. The whistleblower followed the law. The Inspector General followed the law. The President has broken the law by engaging in yet another criminal cover-up, this time at the expense of our national security and our liberty.
“Our democracy can only survive if our leaders put the national interest ahead of their own. Our nation can only stay safe if security decisions are made based on facts, not on whether the president personally benefits. President Trump has violated this sacred trust, abusing the power of the presidency for his personal gain. He has left us no other choice but to begin a full-blown impeachment inquiry before he can do any more harm to our freedoms, security, and rule of law.”
Rep. Demings serves on the House Judiciary, Intelligence, and Homeland Security Committees. She first announced support for impeachment in April, 2019.
