On Sept. 24, U.S. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles), chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, expressed her support for the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
“For the last month, the House Judiciary Committee has been engaged in an impeachment investigation. Now, combined with the leadership of the speaker and our committee chairs, this body is moving in lockstep towards a common goal,” Bass said. “Ever since Trump set foot in the Oval Office, he has been on a mission to rip apart decades of policies that protect civil rights, the environment, public lands and more. He has embarrassed our nation in the eyes of the world with his regular display of ignorance of treaties and historic alliances along with his horrific treatment of families and violation of international laws at our borders.
“It is time for a formal impeachment inquiry against this lawless and unstable president,” Bass added.
U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, weighed in on Twitter.
“It’s bad enough Trump sought help from a foreign power in the last election. It’s worse still that he obstructed the investigation into his misconduct. Now, he‘s admitted using his office to coerce another country to interfere in 2020. I fully support the impeachment inquiry,” Schiff said.
