Speaker Nancy Pelosi released a “Dear Colleague” letter defending the impeachment inquiry amid President Trump’s repeated attacks.
Key takeaway: “The facts are uncontested: that the President abused his power for his own personal, political benefit, at the expense of our national security interests.”
“There are also some who say that no serious wrongdoing was committed, because the military assistance to Ukraine was eventually released. The fact is, the aid was only released after the whistleblower exposed the truth of the President’s extortion and bribery, and the House launched a formal investigation.”
Also important: “The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide.’ That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections.”Save to Favorites
