Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, issued the following statement:
“For the last month, the House Judiciary Committee has been engaged in an impeachment investigation. Now, combined with the leadership of the Speaker and our committee chairs, this body is moving in lockstep towards a common goal.
“Ever since Trump set foot in the Oval Office, he has been on a mission to rip apart decades of policies that protect civil rights, the environment, public lands and more. He has embarrassed our nation in the eyes of the world with his regular display of ignorance of treaties and historic alliances along with his horrific treatment of families and violation of international laws at our borders.
“It is time for a formal impeachment inquiry against this lawless and unstable President.”
