Since then, even more evidence – especially with the President allegedly pressuring Ukraine to manufacture dirt on a political opponent and withholding foreign aid as leverage – has emerged to support an investigation. Thank you to all of our congressional representatives for supporting our Constitution, the integrity of our elections and voting for the inquiry.
