Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today released the following statement: 

“I take my oath of office very seriously, and with it the responsibility to defend the Constitution and to preserve our democratic institutions.

“The House and Senate voted in a strong bipartisan way this week to urge the Administration to release the whistleblower complaint and I am glad it is now available to the public.

“After reading the contents of both the memo of the President’s call with the President of Ukraine and the whistleblower complaint, I have concluded that a formal impeachment inquiry should begin and investigations must continue in order to protect our national security and uphold the rule of law.

“The American people are watching and counting on us to approach this inquiry with the gravity and seriousness of purpose that this consequential moment demands. This inquiry by Congress must be diligent, fact-based and above partisan politics.”
