Maloney Calls for Impeachment Hearings at Foley Square Rally (Video)

June 17, 2019

NEW YORK – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney called for the House of Representatives to begin the impeachment process at a rally at Foley Square in New York on June 15.

“I’ve been thinking about impeachment for a long time. It’s is not something that Congress, or our country, can undertake lightly – it’s a terrible, weighty thing.

“After carefully reviewing evidence laid out in the Mueller Report, after attending numerous hearings, after listening to the concerns of my constituents, and after doing as much soul-searching as I’ve ever done in my life – it is my inescapable conclusion that the House of Representatives must open an impeachment inquiry against the President of the United States. Just this week, the President went on national television and said that he would accept information from a foreign government in the course of the campaign, putting himself in the debt of a foreign power. He has learned nothing from the Mueller report and investigation. He has said that he will continue to stonewall any investigation and fight every subpoena, before he even sees them. He continues to put himself above the law and his own interests over the American people and our democracy.”

Maloney concluded by saying, “I do not say this lightly. Impeachment is going to be a painful ordeal for our already divided nation. But, given the evidence we’ve seen of numerous violations of public trust and democratic norms, our commitment to the Constitution demands our action. And the strength of our faith in the Constitution gives me hope that we will emerge stronger than before.”
