Lipinski Statement on Impeachment Resolution

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

“Today, Rep. Al Green offered a Resolution of Impeachment of the President.  I joined with House Democratic leadership and 2/3rds of the House Democratic Caucus in voting to table the resolution. 

“Moving forward with ‎this resolution at this time would have undermined the investigations of the Trump Administration currently taking place, and could prevent a complete account of critical information the investigations already have or may uncover. 

“Like many, I am concerned about the legality of some of the President’s actions and have found many of his comments offensive, but now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment.”
