Moolenaar Statement on Speaker Pelosi’s Impeachment Announcement

September 25, 2019
Press Release

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced that the House of Representatives will pursue an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

She announced the inquiry before the release of a transcript of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The transcript showed, contrary to media reports and the claims of Democrats in Congress, that U.S. military aid to Ukraine was NOT contingent on conditions tied to the 2020 elections.  

Congressman John Moolenaar made the following statement on the impeachment inquiry:

“Right now, I am working on the issues that matter most to hardworking Michigan residents, including protecting the Great Lakes, building critical infrastructure at the Soo Locks, making a trade deal with our allies, and continuing the strong economy we have in Michigan with four percent unemployment near record-lows. Unfortunately, House Democrats have been doing everything they can to try and impeach President Trump since he was elected in 2016. The impeachment announcement by Speaker Pelosi shows Democrats are bending to the socialist wing of their party at the expense of getting important work done for the American people.”
