SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – A couple of area congressmen are throwing their support behind impeachment efforts against President Trump.
“The House of Representatives cannot sit on their hands over this abuse of power any longer,” said U.S. Representative Joaquin Castro.” We cannot allow this President to intimidate any foreign president into opening an investigation to dig up dirt on his political rival.”
The Democrat, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, has been calling for an impeachment inquiry for some time. He says it goes beyond partisan politics and the 2020 election.
“Normalizing this dangerous and illicit behavior sets a precedent for future presidents and Congresses,” said Castro. “We are in a fight for our country and for our democracy.”
Congressman Lloyd Doggett also supports moving toward impeaching President Trump.
“This President has come to believe that he can get away with anything when it comes to trampling our democracy,” said Doggett. “I think most people will realize that this time, he’s gone too far.”
President Trump calls it “witch hunt garbage'” and some of his advisers say the impeachment efforts will backfire on Democrats.
