Rose Statement on Ongoing Investigation into Allegations Against the President
Congressman: ‘This story is far from over and we must proceed in a deliberate and responsible manner that brings all the facts to the forefront and earns the trust of the American people’
Washington, September 27, 2019
Congressman Max Rose released the following statement today on the ongoing investigation into allegations against the President regarding Ukraine:
“I've now sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution twice and I take my Congressional oath just as seriously as when I deployed to Afghanistan. That's why I will not operate on any false timeline when our national security is at stake. My constituents—and our country—deserve Members of Congress who will review the facts and ensure the American people are fully informed. Those who would celebrate this moment or dismiss these serious allegations simply because it's a Republican President should recognize that mindset is why the American people are disgusted with our politics.
“The transcript, whistleblower report, and the Acting Director of National Intelligence’s testimony is deeply alarming. This story is far from over and we must proceed in a deliberate and responsible manner that brings all the facts to the forefront and earns the trust of the American people. That's the only way to uphold the Constitution without tearing this country apart. Under no circumstances will I allow politics to influence my decision regarding this matter.”
