Some bug news today:
“What I believe we should do is move to an official impeachment inquiry for documents and testimony and make it clear that is the constitutional authority of the House of Representatives,” said Durbin, who became the latest Senate Democrat to favor impeachment proceedings following revelations that Trump asked Ukraine to investigate former Vice President and 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his family.
“I know that the Trump White House will stonewall us, they have already and that means this matter will be taken up right there,” Durbin said pointing to the Supreme Court.
The Illinois Democrat is the highest ranking member of Senate Democratic leadership to endorse impeachment proceedings. Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), the No. 3 and No. 4 Senate Democrats, previously said they supported an impeachment inquiry.
Thank you, Senator Durbin, for adding more momentum to this fight. If your Democratic Rep or Senator isn’t on board with impeachment yet, they need to hear from you.
