Press Release

WASHINGTON, DCCongressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H. Res. 660, a resolution to establish further procedures for the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump:

“Every Member of Congress swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, and today’s vote was part of adhering to that solemn obligation. This resolution will establish procedures for how the House of Representatives will go forward with public hearings as part of the next phase of the impeachment inquiry.  Three House committees have already collected extensive evidence, and now the American people will get to hear, in detail, what that evidence proves. I am confident this resolution will allow us all to move forward in a fair, professional and transparent manner that will reveal this evidence to the American people and afford the President appropriate due process.”
