Congressman Kilmer on impeachment vote: Inquiry needs to be ‘transparent and fair’

U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer said the congressional inquiry into the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump should be “transparent and fair.”

The 6th District Democrat released the following statement regarding his vote to support House Resolution 660:

“As the impeachment inquiry proceeds, it is important that it be transparent and fair. That’s what today’s vote was about. The first thing I did as our community’s representative was to swear an oath to uphold the constitution. I take that oath seriously.

“The months ahead should not be about re-litigating the 2016 election or trying to influence the 2020 election. Rather, they should be about protecting the integrity of our democracy and the rule of law. And as someone who came here to make life better for the folks I represent, my sincere hope is that Congress continues to move forward on those vital priorities as well,” Kilmer said.
