MEDIA CONTACT: Nancy Rodriguez, email@example.com
Washington, DC — Below is a statement from Zinelle October, ACS Interim President:
“There have been numerous challenges to our constitutional order over the last few years. Given these circumstances, it is not only appropriate but necessary that Congress begin this formal impeachment inquiry. We are encouraged that the congressional committees charged with the duty to serve as a check on abuses of executive power are undertaking their constitutional obligation.
“We can only hope that the Senate’s unanimous call for the whistleblower complaint is a sign of their commitment to transparency and a recognition by all American institutions that no one is above the law.”
