Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.​ – Following is a statement from U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) on her vote today to move forward with a formal impeachment inquiry against the president of the United States:

“The president has been accused of abusing his power, betraying the American people and undermining our national security. He’s openly invited some of our biggest adversaries to intervene in our elections and has blocked Congress’s every attempt to get to the truth. Every member of Congress swears an oath to defend our Constitution and, by approving this resolution today, we are taking the appropriate steps to do exactly that.”
