Rogers: ‘I will continue to stand with President Trump and fight against this partisan nonsense’

Congressman Mike Rogers (AL-03) on Monday sent a letter to Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, requesting access to the interview transcript of Ambassador Kurt Volker, the former special envoy to Ukraine.

In a statement about the letter, Rogers emphasized that Schiff and House Democrats need to be transparent with what is happening in these types of “closed door meetings” regarding the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

“These behind closed door meetings should be open to Members of Congress and the American people,” Rogers said.

“House Democrats’ continued refusal to share information or even bring a vote to the House Floor on the impeachment inquiry shows their disregard for fairness,” he decried.

“This sham of an impeachment inquiry is a big deal for our country and one that should be done out in the open as it has been previously. I will continue to stand with President Trump and fight against this partisan nonsense and waste of the American People’s time,” Rogers concluded.

Rogers currently serves as ranking member on the House Committee on Homeland Security and a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee.
