Rep. McNerney on Announcement of Formal Impeachment Inquiry
Washington, DC – In response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that the House of Representatives will move forward with a formal impeachment inquiry, Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) issued the following statement:
“When I came to Washington, I swore an oath to uphold the Constitution and I do not take that responsibility lightly. The allegations against the president are grave, and they are a threat to our democracy and national security. To fulfill our sworn duty, Congress must move forward with an impeachment inquiry. Brazen lies have been a hallmark of this presidency and it is now time for a reckoning.”
