Rep. Calvert: Impeachment Resolution Designed to Fool Americans

October 31, 2019
Press Release

Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement after voting against the impeachment inquiry resolution (H. Res. 660):

“I’ve always heard that sunlight is the best disinfectant. Yet, the Democrats’ impeachment process is taking place in the darkness of a closed-door room in the Capitol basement. Perhaps they know light would expose the real truth of this sham. The bill the Speaker rushed to the House floor today is only designed to fool Americans into thinking this process is fair and transparent. It’s neither, and this resolution does nothing to change that. That’s why all Republicans voted against it, and two Democrats joined us. Under the resolution passed today, the only information about the proceedings that I will have access to is a report drafted by Rep. Adam Schiff and other Democrats who have been itching to impeach the President since the night he was elected. This is a total witch hunt.”
