Sanford Bishop (Ga.)

"The allegations that the President withheld Congressionally appropriated taxpayer dollars for national security as leverage against a foreign power to pursue unfounded allegations against a political opponent at home are extremely alarming.

“During Director Mueller’s seven hours of testimony yesterday, he made it very clear that President Trump was not exonerated in his investigation and that the President wasn’t always truthful in the written answers he submitted.

"Further, President Trump’s repeated statements that he invites future illegal, foreign interference in our elections, his repeated current attempts to obstruct Congress’ oversight authority, and his clear intent to continue to obstruct justice and the will of Congress, create an urgency of action. I am, therefore, calling for the immediate opening of an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump."

"Trump has violated his oath of office. He operates for himself, in his personal interest – and not in the interest of the American people," she added. "The impeachment inquiry should be put on the fast track and all of the facts made plain.”

“If the allegations are found to be true, or if the Administration continues to refuse to comply with reasonable Congressional requests for information, I will take the grave step of calling for a formal authorization of an impeachment investigation. This investigation should look into the President's obstruction so that we can get to the bottom of what happened and have transparency for the American people. If the investigation discovers that these reports are true, we should then consider articles of impeachment on the House floor," Houlahan said in a statement on Sept. 23 in light of the Ukraine allegations.

The House Appropriations Committee chairwoman came out in support of an impeachment inquiry on July 31, nearly two weeks after she voted with 94 fellow Democrats to go forward with an effort to impeach Trump.

“Since he took office, House Democrats have been aggressively and thoughtfully investigating potentially illegal activity by the President and others on his campaign and in his administration.

"I fully expect the responsible House committees to expedite their investigations and, as soon as possible, formally draft articles of impeachment.

“It is clear that the sitting president of the United States has repeatedly violated the law and damaged our democracy," he said in a statement on Sept. 24.
