GOP Rep Mark Amodei announced he is now supporting the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) today released the following statement in support of congressional oversight into House Democrats’ inquiry into impeachment:
“I held a 40 minute telephone press conference today with Nevada media outlets to respond to their questions about the impeachment inquiry made by Speaker Pelosi earlier this week,” said Congressman Amodei.
“Following that call, Nevada Independent reporter Humberto Sanchez released an article. The first paragraph of Mr. Sanchez’s article reads: ‘Rep. Mark Amodei supports the House’s inquiry into whether President Donald Trump should be impeached, but is withholding judgment on whether Trump has crossed the legal line.’”
“This is absolutely an accurate statement in the sense that the House and Senate have both unanimously supported the resolution expressing the sense of Congress that the whistleblower complaint received on August 12, 2019, by the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, should be transmitted immediately to the Select Committee on Intelligence of the Senate and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives. It is also accurate that the White House supports this same resolution. In no way, shape, or form, did I indicate support for impeachment. Rather, I stressed my complete agreement with Senator Cortez-Masto’s (D-NV) statement reported to KTVN Channel 2 from yesterday which is as follows:
‘I think from all of that information, we have to follow the facts and figure out what happened here,’ Cortez-Masto said.
“Anyone who reads Mr. Sanchez’s article and thinks that somehow there is a vote to convict before the process has played out – as called for by the resolution unanimously supported by everyone concerned – is simply, individual fantasy.
“I now have a full appreciation of how the President feels. Have a nice weekend.”
It is important to note that he doesn’t support impeachment(yet) but that doesn’t mean this is a big deal. The bottom line is that even support for the inquiry is support for the coup attempt on the President. All memebers of the GOP should be calling out the lies being pushed by the Democrats and Mainstream Press and not helping to promote them.
