House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, adding that ‘no one is above the law.’
Nineteen House Democrats in New York have come out of support of impeachment hearings, according to a list compiled by CNN.
However, Rep. John Katko, who represents all of Cayuga, Onondaga, and Wayne counties, and the western part of Oswego County, says he is still waiting for the full facts before he supports impeachment.
“I served as a federal prosecutor for nearly 20 years and unequivocally believe in following the facts, wherever they lead. The full facts surrounding the President’s conversation with the Ukrainian President need to come out. The abrupt decision by Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings without waiting for the facts is a dramatic overstep,” Katko said in a statement.
