Reps. Ben Ray Luján and Deb Haaland, both D-N.M., support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump after revelations that the president discussed a possible investigation of the son of a potential rival with the president of Ukraine.
Rep. Xochitl Torres Small, D-N.M., called for the release of a whistleblower’s complaint against the president but stopped short of endorsing an impeachment inquiry.
“President Trump betrayed his oath of office, betrayed our national security, and betrayed the security of our elections,” Luján said. “His attempt to manipulate our elections by pressing for foreign interference is unprecedented and wrong. I previously called for an impeachment inquiry because the president’s corruption is jeopardizing our national security, elections and Democracy. The recent allegations and today’s (Tuesday’s) announcement that we are moving forward with the impeachment process shows the urgency of this moment.”
