Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb praised the vote by the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday to adopt a resolution to formalize Democrats’ impeachment probe of President Donald Trump.
The vote was 232-196 to pass the resolution, which no Republican lawmakers supported.
“Nebraska Reps. Don Bacon, Jeff Fortenberry and Adrian Smith are cowards. President Trump must be held accountable for the clear abuse of power,” Kleeb said. “Republicans are hiding behind talking points while Democrats want an open investigation. In 2020, Nebraskans can send a clean slate of representatives who will respect our Constitution. The Democratic Party in Nebraska stands with the people.”
The impeachment inquiry is looking into revelations about the president’s pressure campaign to enlist Ukraine to investigate his political rivals, among other things.
