WASHINGTON—Rep. Greg Stanton, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement after revelations of President Trump’s conduct relating to Ukraine:
The mountain of credible evidence that the President has engaged in impeachable conduct continues to grow, including his own alarming admissions over the past several days. Every member of Congress swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies—foreign and domestic—and the House now has a duty to move forward with impeachment of the President. Failure to act would create a dangerous precedent that is too high a cost for our nation to bear. History will judge us for how we respond in this unique moment, and for whether we have the courage to uphold the rule of law.
On May 30, Stanton called for the House of Representatives to “move to the next stages of holding the President accountable,” including opening an impeachment inquiry. That statement is available here.
