Congressman Mike Rogers (AL-03) is standing firmly with the president after the White House on Tuesday sent a letter to U.S. House Democratic leadership stating that the Trump administration would not cooperate with the Democrats’ self-proclaimed impeachment inquiry.
The White House’s position is based on the House not having held an official vote to open the inquiry, as well as what the administration views as a partisan, biased process that does not allow President Donald Trump his constitutional rights to a fair proceeding.
In a statement on Wednesday, Rogers said, “President Trump is absolutely right to not participate in Nancy Pelosi’s sham impeachment inquiry. The Democrat’s ongoing antics are nothing more than their continued attempt to undo the 2016 election and take down the president that the American people elected fair and square.”
“House Democrats refuse to vote on the impeachment inquiry on the House Floor and will not share information with Republicans,” he outlined. “Even more, Chairman Adam Schiff sat before his committee recently and made up his own version of the telephone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky.”
Rogers serves as ranking member on the House Committee on Homeland Security and a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee.
“House Democrats have no respect for the rule of law, fairness or House procedure,” he decried. “Most of all, House Democrats have no respect for the American people for threatening to put our Nation through this bogus impeachment stunt.”
“I will continue to proudly stand with President Trump against these politically motivated attacks from the radical left,” Rogers concluded.
