Trump Impeachment: ‘My Party Put Enormous Pressure On Me To Support Impeachment Inquiry,’ : House Democrat Reveals

Published

Trump

A Democrat that didn’t want Donald Trump’s impeachment unless it was a Bi-partisan agreement, has come out to reveal that she was pressured into finally supporting impeachment proceedings against the United State’s number one citizen by her party.

Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Michgan, claimed she was put under “enormous” pressure to change her stance and support the impeachment inquiry – even though it might divide the nation and also affect her re-election in the state, a state Trump won in 2016.

Trump faces several impeachment enquiries by the Democrat controlled House of Reps for allegedly pressuring Ukraine’s president to investigate presidential election rival Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, before they could get $400m of military aid.

Trump Impeachment:

Dingell, who was initially against impeachment, said she decided to support the inquiry last week when the inspector general of the Department of National Intelligence found the whistleblower complaint about Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine “to be true and credible”

“I was one of the most recent people to come out under [an] enormous amount of pressure,” Dingell told “CNN Newsroom.” on Wednesday.

“I was the focus of ads by both Tom Steyer and Moveon.org, but I was worried about how divided the country is. And frankly, we’re continuing to see how divided [it is]. Though, you can’t be divided on [the] rule of the law.”

“That’s my job. To protect this country, and to protect the Constitution. I think that there’s a lot of confusion, a lot of chaos out there. I am actually surprised back home… they’re asking questions, they’re puzzled, they’re focused.”

‘They (my constituents) just see chaos in Washington, trying to figure it out — what does it mean,” she said.

“They look at Washington and say, ‘What’s happening?’…  To me, this is an investigation. We’re getting the facts, we’re following the facts… But we need to protect our national security. We need to protect our country. And I think people are asking questions. Not everybody understands it, but they’re concerned when they heard that our national security is in danger.”

“It’s a difficult situation everybody finds themselves in, but we all have a fundamental responsibility to protect this country… That’s what we do as Americans… This should not be partisan. It’s more partisan than it should be. We need to get the facts, and the American people need to understand what’s being found.”
