Congresswoman Debbie Lesko Statement on Baseless Impeachment
Washington, DC, September 24, 2019
Today, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced House Democrats will pursue a formal impeachment inquiry. Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement:
“For three years, Democrats have been obsessed with taking down President Donald Trump. When their Russian collusion theory did not work, they switched to obstruction of justice. When the Judiciary Committee dragged Special Counsel Mueller in to testify, that theory failed too. Now they are using unverified claims from unknown sources without any evidence to formally launch their impeachment inquiry. Democrats will stop at nothing to undermine the President of the United States.
“Pursuing a baseless impeachment inquiry will backfire on Speaker Pelosi and her Democratic Caucus. This path makes it even easier for President Trump to be reelected and for Republicans to win back the House in 2020.”
