Washington D.C. - Today, Congressman Lamborn voted against H.R. 660, the latest attempt by House Democrats to continue their soviet-style impeachment inquiry. This resolution keeps the proceedings secret, fails to provide the administration any due process rights, and limits Members of Congress participating in the process.
Congressman Lamborn made the following statement after voting against this resolution:
“Speaker Pelosi’s resolution proves that the Democrats’ so-called impeachment inquiry is nothing but a total sham. From the beginning, Democrats have conducted a secretive and corrupt process against the duly elected President of the United States. This resolution continues the soviet-style tactics Democrats have been using for weeks and provides zero due process rights to the President. It is a shame that Democrats have weaponized impeachment and have broken precedence from past presidential impeachments. My constituents have been denied access to the truth and the facts because Speaker Pelosi and her members are acting behind closed doors to attempt to undo the 2016 election. This partisan approach has been irrevocably tainted. It isn’t about due process. It isn’t about the constitution. It’s about the fact that House Democrats hate President Trump.”
