Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement regarding Speaker Pelosi’s impeachment inquiry announcement:
“Democrats have been trying to reverse the results of the 2016 election since President Trump took office. And despite the American people demanding solutions, it appears nothing will change House Democrats’ singular focus to damage President Trump. This is all about politics. Not about facts. The House has already voted three times to impeach President Trump — twice before the Mueller report was even released. Now — without even seeing the transcript that President Trump will release tomorrow — Democrats are barreling towards more reckless investigations and more wasted time at the American taxpayer’s expense. And they are doing it all without any regard for accountability.
“Nancy Pelosi’s announcement just follows the same tired disregard of facts that Jerry Nadler has had, that her socialist Democrats have had, to push impeachment on America based on contrivance and partisan animus. Just because she is Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi does not get to decide this unilaterally. This is not an imperial speakership. This is the People’s House. It is crystal clear to the American people that Democrats are only interested in themselves, not their fellow citizens.”
