Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) released this statement following the House vote on continuing the impeachment investigations.
Washington, DC – Today, the House voted on H. Res. 660, which directs certain House committees to continue investigations into an impeachment inquiry of President Trump. Following the vote, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) released this statement:
“As I have said countless times, we need answers to what happened with regards to Ukraine, but my colleagues across the aisle chose to start this impeachment process behind closed doors well before bringing this resolution to the House floor today.
“The impeachment resolution, as written, will further allow this broken process to continue. It’s a disservice to the American people and our Constitution, and I firmly believe that we need greater transparency and a more public process. Ignoring the right of due process, as my colleagues have done, ignores past precedent for impeachment and does not help inform the public. This institution requires the public’s trust, and I believe we can and must do better.”
