Rep. Ratcliffe statement on Democrats’ impeachment inquiry

Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) released the following statement today in support of the Trump administration’s refusal to participate in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry: 

“The American people should be insulted by the Democrats’ attempt to influence the outcome of the 2020 election through a sham ‘impeachment inquiry’ that was designed as a smear campaign against President Trump. I support the administration’s refusal to tolerate or participate in an investigation that follows no precedent and no due process in a complete violation of the Constitution. If the Democrats had any legitimate basis for impeachment other than their political bias against President Trump, they’d have no problem playing by the rules through an investigation that implements transparency and accountability. The Democrats know that if they’d like to take up an impeachment vote before the full House of Representatives, they’re more than welcome to do so. But their ongoing refusal to bring up formal impeachment speaks louder than any media report or whistleblower complaint to their complete lack of evidence in support of any such action against the president.”
