RELEASE: Harris County Democratic Party Statement on House Democrats Decision to Move Forward with Impeachment Inquiry Against President Donald Trump

Houston, TX - The Harris County Democratic Party unequivocally supports the decision by House Democrats to begin Impeachment Inquiry against President Donald Trump. Harris County Democratic Party Chair Lillie Schechter issued the following statement: 

"Throughout his time in office, Donald Trump has repeatedly undermined the rule of law and anyone that has attempted to hold him accountable. No role is more responsible to the American people than that of President."

"A whistleblower has now accused Trump of requesting Ukrainian leaders to interfere with our election system, and then admitted himself that the call took place. These activities are, without a doubt, impeachable offenses."

"This President's blatant disregard for the rule of law places the entire country in danger and leaves us lacking moral leadership at the highest level of government. No matter what side of the aisle you are on politically, we can all agree that our country deserves a President who represents the best of us. 

"We look forward to the uncovering of all abuses of power by this administration through a formal and transparent impeachment inquiry. That all parties involved, including the President of the United States, are held accountable for their actions. No one is above the law."
