Guthrie: Democrats trying to impeach Trump at the expense of other important issues

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- South central Kentucky Congressman Brett Guthrie is responding to calls from House Democrats to impeach President Donald Trump.

The Republican sent WNKY the following statement Wednesday, about 24 hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a former impeachment inquiry into the president.

“House Democrats have been waiting to impeach President Trump since day one and this is just the latest chapter,” said Guthrie. “They are now trying to impeach President Trump at the expense of other important issues that we must address, including the outbreak of vaping lung illnesses and skyrocketing drug prices. This afternoon, I voted to release the contents of the whistleblower report so we can review it alongside the transcript of President Trump’s call with the president of Ukraine. While I look forward to reviewing all of the facts in this case, I urge my colleagues to get back to work to solve America’s problems.”
