WASHINGTON, DC – Thursday morning, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said the U.S. House of Representatives had no choice but to move forward with introducing articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Our news team asked Maine Senator Angus King what he thinks of the proceedings so far.
The Independent said that the House of Representatives has done a good job trying to gather the facts, but one of the problems is the administration cutting access to documents and witnesses who could clear things up.
“It bothers me that somebody like Mick Mulvaney, for example, the president won’t let go to testify to Congress and if he could come, he could probably answer some of these questions very clearly,” said Sen. King.
He emphasized he wants people to know a lot is going on in Washington that does not have to do with impeachment as it’s not in the Senate right now.
Among other things, Sen. King mentioned he’s working to improve broadband access in Maine and to help struggling blueberry farmers.
