WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Kendra Horn (D-OK-05) on Thursday released a statement, saying that she has made the decision to vote for the impeachment inquiry resolution against President Donald Trump.
Democrats released text of a resolution earlier this week that authorizes the next phase of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. The House voted to pass the resolution on Thursday.
“After much thought and consideration, I have made the decision to vote for the House Inquiry Resolution. This is not a decision I made lightly, and this is not a vote for impeachment. It is a vote to create clear rules for effective public hearings and ensure transparency for the American people. As I’ve said all along, I always look at the facts in front of me and vote in the best interests of Oklahomans.
The questions before us are serious, and I approach them without any predetermined opinion or judgement. I took an oath to defend the Constitution, and will weigh the facts as they are presented in a thoughtful, fair and transparent manner.
However we cannot, and will not, let this process paralyze the work of the House. In the past few weeks alone we have voted to improve veterans’ health care, establish protections for senior citizens, and improve victims’ representation in the criminal justice system. My top priorities will continue to be fighting for Oklahomans to lower the cost of health care, improve our education system and secure our economy.” Horn said.
The eight-page resolution released calls for open hearings and requires the House Intelligence Committee to submit a report outlining its findings and recommendations.
