WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05) issued the following statement:

·       “After reading the transcript of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian President;

·       hearing President Trump acknowledge the conversation;

·       understanding the illegal obstruction by the DNI for the Intelligence Committee to see the whistleblower report;

·       hearing the concerns of intelligence committee members from both sides of the aisle after viewing the report;

·       seeing the bipartisan, bicameral universal support to make the detailed whistleblower report public to the American people;

·       and finally, reading the complete whistleblower transcript this morning; I feel an impeachment inquiry is indeed justified. 

Sadly, the litany of activities from this President has brought us to this juncture.  No one is above the law of the land.”
