Presidential Impeachment Inquiry

Utah Democratic Party Chair, Jeff Merchant, Comments on Presidential Impeachment Inquiry

For Immediate Release

Press Statement
September 26, 2019

“As our country continues to be roiled by the news of an impeachment inquiry being opened by the US House of Representatives, the Utah Democratic party is both saddened by the possibility of presidential wrongdoing and heartened by the protections guaranteed by the separation of powers enshrined in our constitution. As a co-equal branch of government, the Congress has both a right and duty to determine the facts. 

“This is not a time for celebration among Democrats, nor should it be a time for Republicans to circle the wagons. It should be a time for Americans of all stripes—regardless of political views—to come together in non-partisan form to determine the facts in a fair and meaningful way.”
