Congressman Payne, Jr.'s Statement about the Impeachment of President Trump

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. issued the following statement regarding his position on Trump's Impeachment and the launch of the new impeachment inquiry.  

“After reading the 10 specific cases of obstruction of justice outlined in the Mueller report, I think there is more than enough evidence to support the impeachment of Pres. Donald Trump based on a Constitutional violation of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”  However, I understand that some of my colleagues might need more information before they feel comfortable with that decision.  Therefore, I also support a full impeachment inquiry to gather more information and help them come to their own conclusions.”
