Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC (September 24, 2019) – Earlier this evening, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Congressman Tim Burchett released the following statement:

“I do not support the Democrats’ efforts to impeach President Trump and undermine his presidency. I am not surprised with Speaker Pelosi’s decision to give-in to ‘the Squad’ and the far left. No matter what Speaker Pelosi and ‘the Squad’ say, there are no grounds for impeachment, and all the uproar about the President’s call with Ukrainian President Zelensky is both premature and hypocritical. President Trump has already said he would voluntarily release the transcript of his call. Worse, the Democrats were silent when Vice President Biden and President Obama did exactly the same thing they’re accusing President Trump of. Speaker Pelosi is letting the tail wag the dog. Imagine what Congress could accomplish if Democrats put this kind of effort into passing a budget or securing our border.”
