Representing the 5th District of Illinois

Rep. Quigley Statement on House Impeachment Inquiry

Sep 24, 2019
Press Release

Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05) released the following statement after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would be opening a formal impeachment inquiry:

“Donald Trump’s use of the office of the presidency to pressure a foreign government to interfere in our elections is an unprecedented abuse of power and an impeachable offense.

“I announced my support for opening an impeachment inquiry in May after it became clear that the President’s obstruction of legitimate congressional investigations was preventing us from carrying out our duties.

“Congress is now fulfilling our Constitutional responsibility to hold the President accountable for his actions. Today’s announcement is a reminder that no one is above the law. I look forward to making sure that the American people get the answers they deserve.”
