Press Release

Washington, DC — Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in opposition to the Democrats’ partisan and poisoned effort to validate their bad faith so-called impeachment inquiry:

“America needs action to help lower the cost of prescription drugs, an updated trade agreement with Mexico and Canada and a Congress that properly keeps our government operating. Today’s action is a sad attempt to legitimize a hijacked process that has hidden from the American people the information being provided to remove a duly elected president from office. This resolution is not about impeachment; it’s about Nancy Pelosi giving Adam Schiff the authority to act as prosecutor, judge and jury in a partisan effort to overturn the result of the 2016 election. There is a historic precedent for handling impeachment — one that House Democrats have rejected from the start of this shadowy and secretive process. The American people deserve better.”
