Washington, D.C. Today, Congressman Don Young (R-AK) issued the below statement following Speaker Pelosi’s announcement of a formal impeachment inquiry:

“From the moment President Trump was elected, Congressional Democrats have acted as sore losers, spending every minute working to undermine him and his Administration’s policies. Speaker Pelosi has decided to begin an impeachment inquiry – a decision she has been forced into by the extreme left of her party who harbor nothing but hatred for President Trump. House Democrats tried to take down President Trump with the Mueller Report and failed. Frankly, impeachment is not only a political stunt, but a waste of time. I do not support impeachment, and while President Trump and I do not agree on every issue, I have not seen evidence of an impeachable offense. Impeachment proceedings require the House to dedicate significant time and resources; time and resources that would be better spent focused on making our country a better place and not on the November 2020 elections.”
