Luján Statement on House Impeachment Inquiry

Washington, D.C. – U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement on the House impeachment inquiry:

“President Trump betrayed his oath of office, betrayed our national security, and betrayed the security of our elections. 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 announcement that we are moving forward with the impeachment process shows the urgency of this moment.”
