Foster Statement on House Resolution on Next Steps in Impeachment Inquiry
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed a resolution that establishes procedures for the next phase of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump:
“Today, I voted in support of moving the impeachment inquiry into the next phase, including holding public hearings, allowing the President and his Counsel to participate in the process, and establishing procedures for the transfer of evidence to the Judiciary Committee as it considers potential articles of impeachment. This follows precedents set forth in previous impeachment proceedings taken up by the House.
“The ongoing impeachment inquiry has collected extensive evidence and testimony that paints a disturbing picture of a President who abused his power and violated his oath of office. It’s time for the American people to learn firsthand about the President’s misconduct and for the House of Representatives to move forward with its constitutional obligation to hold the President accountable.”
