“We are now faced with accusations from numerous sources that our president attempted to pressure a foreign government to investigate one of his rivals in the next presidential election. In other words, the president of the United States is attempting to fix the election. I think these accusations should be addressed with all of the tools at Congress’s disposal, including articles of impeachment. …The fact that our president is trying to induce a foreign power to threaten our elections – I think that’s a huge national security risk. The fact that a president is withholding support from a security partner that is trying to fight off Russia, which has presented multiple national security threats over the past several years. …– I just think it’s so incredibly offensive to put that kind of support and that kind of fight that they have going on in jeopardy and in peril. …”
– Rep. Mikie Sherrill, a centrist Democrat from New Jersey, speaking on September 25 in an interview with “The Daily,” a podcast of The New York Times.
