Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) issued the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed H. Res. 660, which establishes the procedure for the next phase of the House's impeachment inquiry:
“The evidence clearly shows President Trump extorted a foreign government for political gain - a clear abuse of power, betrayal of national security and corruption of our elections.
This impeachment investigation is moving into the next phase so all Americans can see for themselves the blatant abuse of power and cover up. This is an important next step in the process and reaffirms that any effort by the President or his allies to block the investigation is obstruction of justice. No one is above the law.”
