FLORIDA LEADERS RESPOND TO TRUMP IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, RELEASE OF TRANSCRIPT OF CALL
Florida lawmakers responded yesterday after President Donald Trump released a transcript of his call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
Democratic Congressman Darren Soto said the call shows Trump trying to enlist a foreign power to help him get re-elected.
Soto says that’s why he supports House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call for a formal impeachment inquiry.
“We’re going to be judged by our constituents and by history whether we’re going to uphold the Constitution or not.”
Republican Congressman Ted Yoho said there’s nothing in the transcript to substantiate these allegations and he questions the bias of the whistle blower complaint about it.
Yoho says impeachment proceedings will only distract legislators from working together on issues like debt, border security, healthcare.
“Let’s do something that benefits the country instead of tearing the country apart.”
