TUXEDO, NY - In response to U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham’s resolution condemning the Democrats’ closed-door impeachment inquiry, Congressional candidate for NY-18, Chele Chiavacci Farley, released the following statement:
“The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives has been engaged in a reckless and sham impeachment inquiry with the clear goal of removing a duly-elected President from office. There has been no due process, no cross examination, no representation for the President, no public committee hearings and no access to witnesses or even transcripts of testimony. Led by House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, the Democrats are blatantly ignoring due process and the sacred American tenet of presuming innocence before guilt. This is the same Adam Schiff who lied about never having contact with the whistleblower. What exactly is going on behind closed doors?
Every American should be concerned about what Democrats in Congress are doing. The Democrats leading the impeachment charge have made it clear that the only rule that matters is that there are no more rules. If they can do this to the President, imagine what they could do to the ordinary American citizen.
I commend Senator Graham for introducing his resolution demanding that President Trump receives his right to due process of law. Americans who love and care about our basic freedoms must make their positions heard on election day in 2020. It’s time for these power-hungry politicians to go.”
