Rep. Waltz on Impeachment: Nothing in President Trump’s Call Rises to Level of High Crimes and Misdemeanors
Washington, December 18, 2019
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) addressed the U.S. House of Representatives to discuss his opposition to the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.
“I’m a Green Beret and a proud veteran – but this process does not make me proud. I’ve fought all over the world – from Africa to Afghanistan – and seen fairer and more transparent processes than this. Since Democrats lost the election in 2016, they’ve been focused on impeaching this President. Meanwhile, we have not solved the problems America entrusted us to solve, [like] immigration, healthcare [and] infrastructure. Nothing in President Trump’s call rises to the levels of high crimes and misdemeanors. For that reason, I’ll be voting against impeachment today.”
