Deutch Statement on Impeachment Inquiry Procedures Vote
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) issued this statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 660, "Directing certain committees to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America, and for other purposes":
"We have conducted this impeachment inquiry responsibly and methodically. We are following the House Rules, respecting historical precedent, and fulfilling our oath to support the Constitution. And we carry a full understanding of the grave responsibility we hold.
"With this vote, the House is proceeding toward a full and fair consideration of the evidence that will allow the American people to hear firsthand the mounting evidence against the President."
