The Miami-Dade Democratic Party applauds the leadership of Speaker Nancy Pelosi in initiating an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump and Party Chair Steve Simeonidis released the following statement:
“The latest realization, even by the standards of the Trump Presidency, suggests deeply un-American behavior. The leader of our country withheld $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, days before pressuring their President to investigate the son of his political opponent. President Trump has admitted publicly, if not proudly, that he has attempted to get the Ukrainian government to ‘dig up dirt’, or even make up dirt, on Hunter Biden. For the President of the United States to pressure a foreign government to act against an American citizen is unconscionable. To do so as part of an effort to undermine a political opponent is beyond unprecedented and requires the strongest response within our Constitutional system to check the power of a would-be tyrant.
No one is above the law. We are proud of our South Florida Congressional Representatives Donna Shalala, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for standing with the Speaker. We implore Republicans to think of how history will view them, and to use their power to uphold their oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
