Amodei Releases Statement on Resolution Expressing Congressional Oversight into Democrats' Impeachment Inquiry

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) today released the following statement in support of congressional oversight into House Democrats’ inquiry into impeachment:

“I held a 40 minute telephone press conference today with Nevada media outlets to respond to their questions about the impeachment inquiry made by Speaker Pelosi earlier this week,” said Congressman Amodei.

“Following that call, Nevada Independent reporter Humberto Sanchez released an article. The first paragraph of Mr. Sanchez’s article reads: ‘Rep. Mark Amodei supports the House’s inquiry into whether President Donald Trump should be impeached, but is withholding judgment on whether Trump has crossed the legal line.’”

“This is absolutely an accurate statement in the sense that the House and Senate have both unanimously supported the resolution expressing the sense of Congress that the whistleblower complaint received on August 12, 2019, by the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, should be transmitted immediately to the Select Committee on Intelligence of the Senate and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives. It is also accurate that the White House supports this same resolution. In no way, shape, or form, did I indicate support for impeachment. Rather, I stressed my complete agreement with Senator Cortez-Masto’s (D-NV) statement reported to KTVN Channel 2 from yesterday which is as follows:

‘I think from all of that information, we have to follow the facts and figure out what happened here,’ Cortez-Masto said.

“Anyone who reads Mr. Sanchez’s article and thinks that somehow there is a vote to convict before the process has played out – as called for by the resolution unanimously supported by everyone concerned – is simply, individual fantasy.

“I now have a full appreciation of how the President feels. Have a nice weekend.”
