LaMalfa: Democrats Overplayed their Hand on Impeachment
Sep 25, 2019
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the White House released the full transcript of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy.
LaMalfa said: “Following a drama-filled announcement yesterday that House Democrats would open an impeachment inquiry into the President, today’s news has predictably brought them crashing back to Earth. I’ve read the call transcript and ‘underwhelmed’ is an understatement – it contains nothing that warrants even the slightest thought of impeaching the President. Democrats overplayed their hand – they accepted a baseless, second-hand account of a phone call as gospel without even a brief consideration of the facts. After all the frenzy, we have exactly what we started with yesterday morning – nothing. The American people see right through the Democrats’ impeach-at-all-costs mentality, and they’re sick of it.”
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
