It’s Time To Impeach The President
Trump’s abuse of power and corruption demand accountability
Progress Iowa executive director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today announced that the United States House of Representatives will move ahead with an official impeachment inquiry:
“On inauguration day, President Trump swore to uphold the Constitution. Since that day, he has taken nearly every chance to break his oath.
The constitution prohibits a President from profiting from the office. This President flagrantly promotes his businesses and even encourages foreign officials to stay at his hotels.
Past Presidents have been impeached for obstruction of justice. This President attempted to fire the person investigating him, and prevent justice being done.
Federal law prohibits campaigns from asking for anything of value from a foreign country. This President admitted to soliciting political assistance from the Ukraine, by investigating one of his political opponents.
It is unconscionable that the President of the United States is inviting an attack on our democracy by a foreign government. He has broken the law, and must be held accountable.
We support today’s decision by Speaker Pelosi to move forward with an official impeachment inquiry. We have to uphold the rule of law, and it is time to impeach President Trump.”
