Hern blasts Pelosi for moving on impeachment without any facts


Rep. Hern condemns Pelosi’s decision to move forward on impeachment without any facts

WASHINGTON, DC – Representative Kevin Hern (OK-01) released the following statement after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement to pursue articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

“This decision to move forward on impeachment was made with one thing in mind, and that’s to get this over with as soon as possible,” said Rep. Hern.

“Pelosi saw impeachment favorability drop in the polls these last few weeks, even Congressional support among Democrats is falling. Her goal has always been to impeach President Trump and she knows that the longer she waits, the fewer
 votes she’ll have. Just a few short months ago, Pelosi said that there must be bipartisan support to move forward with something as serious as impeachment, but so far the only bipartisanship has been in opposition to this sham process.”

Rep. Hern continued, “To any Member of Congress saying they want to wait for the facts or need
 more information before committing to impeach, today’s announcement ensures that you will never get those facts or any new information. Pelosi made it clear that she has all the information she needs. This rushed process will not uncover anything new. If we learned anything from this week’s Judiciary hearing, it’s that facts and fact witnesses are the last thing on Pelosi’s mind right now. She’s been saying all along that she wanted a vote on impeachment before Christmas – even before the hearings began! She
 was never going to give the inquiry adequate time, and she certainly was never going to give President Trump a fair shot.”

Background Information:

On March 11, 2019, the
Washington Post published an interview with Speaker Nancy Pelosi where she was quoted saying that “unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”
