Lipinski Statement on Articles of Impeachment

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today:

“I have been greatly concerned with President Trump’s actions in withholding funds that had been approved for the defense of Ukraine. That is why I supported an impeachment inquiry into this matter. We now have formal Articles of Impeachment which I will carefully consider in light of the evidence that has been brought forward in the inquiry.  It is also important to consider any impeachment process in light of history and the future of our nation.  Congress’ power to impeach a president and remove him or her from office is one of the most consequential powers that the Legislative Branch was given in the Constitution and should never be considered lightly.”
