Tell Congress to stand up for the rule of law.
Our leaders need to stand for the American people, not any party or individual.
Tell Congress to uphold their oath to the Constitution.
I think we do need an inquiry because we have to get to the bottom of it. I’m not ready to say I support impeachment and the removal of the president, but I do think we should have an impeachment inquiry.
The president should not have raised the Biden issue on that call, period. It’s not appropriate for a president to engage a foreign government in an investigation of a political opponent.
A sitting president asking foreign powers to investigate fellow US citizens and political rivals should not, and cannot be normalized.
It’s a deeply disturbing situation and circumstance, and I think the proper role and responsibility for Congress at this point is to investigate it and get to the bottom of it.
Congress has a solemn responsibility to every American to fulfill its role in our government system of checks and balances
If you could show me that, you know, Trump was actually engaging in a quid pro quo, outside the phone call, that would be very disturbing.
There is a lot in the whistleblower complaint that is concerning. We need to fully investigate all of the allegations addressed in the letter, and the first step is to talk to the whistleblower.
Again, it’s not just about a call, but even the call is a devastating indictment of the president. Trump: We do a lot for Ukraine. Zelenskyy: We are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes. Trump: I would like you to do us a favor though.
If [the President] used undue – well I don’t know if undue influence is the correct term, but yes, that’s very concerning.
look, it is not appropriate for any candidate for federal office, certainly, including a sitting president, to ask for assistance from a foreign country.
Concerning that conversation, I want to say to the president, this is not OK. That conversation is not OK. And I think it’s disappointing to the American public when they read the transcript.
[The transcript] raises a number of important questions.
I did read the transcript. It remains troubling in the extreme. It’s deeply troubling, clearly what we’ve seen from the transcript itself is deeply troubling.
