Voto Latino Statement on House Impeachment Inquiry
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump’s communications.
Voto Latino fully supports efforts to hold the executive branch to account, especially given the unprecedented severity of the allegations. Encouraging a foreign government to meddle in our democratic elections should alarm every American regardless of party.
This is a monumental moment in our country’s history, Impeachment is an important tool in ensuring our system of checks and balances remains intact. No one is above the law.
This president has shown a wanton disregard for the rule of law and presidential conduct. He has continuously moved the goalposts of propriety. Today’s announcement is a clear indication that this behavior will no longer be tolerated.
We support this effort by Congress to uphold our country’s Constitutional values. The inquiry announced today will set precedent and make it clear to our future leaders that the people of this country will not abide any perversion of the Office of the President.
Voto Latino will be closely watching the coming proceedings and we look forward to a robust and transparent inquiry.
