WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ranking Member of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, released the following statement after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Democrats formally introduced articles of impeachment:

“The announcement of articles of impeachment by Speaker Pelosi this morning is the product of a baseless attempt to upend the will of the people less than 11 months before the next election. Democrats remain in denial about the results of the 2016 election and our country’s undeniable successes under President Trump’s leadership. Nancy Pelosi and her allies cannot fathom that 63 million Americans voted for President Trump and have sought to remove this President since his inauguration. The Democrats’ impeachment effort is a miscarriage of the House of Representatives’ constitutional obligations and marks a shameful chapter in American history.”
