Sen Gillibrand Calls For Impeachment

May 29, 2019

U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today released the following statement in response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s press briefing:

“From the beginning, I have called for a proper process in order to secure key testimony and information related to the Mueller investigation, so that Congress – as a co-equal branch of government – can fulfill its responsibility to deliver the truth to the American people. But the White House has repeatedly stonewalled Congress’ ability to take basic fact-finding steps and make an informed decision. Combined with the fact that Robert Mueller clearly expects Congress to exercise its constitutional authority and take steps that he could not, it’s time for Republicans and Democrats to begin impeachment hearings and follow the facts wherever they may lead. We cannot let this president defy basic accountability measures built into our Constitution.”
