- John Emmons, Republican candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania's 6th Congressional District, released the following statement following Rep. Chrissy Houlahan's announcement of her support of impeachment.
"Once again, Chrissy Houlahan has revealed herself to be a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi's partisan impeachment farce. Chrissy Houlahan ran as a so-called moderate, spending millions on television bemoaning the 'anger and partisanship' in Washington. Now she's not only part of the problem, backing a purely partisan impeachment driven by the angry left, she's one of the leaders of the effort.
"The Democrats have spent three years and millions of taxpayer dollars to investigate President Trump, making scurrilous accusations, trafficking wild conspiracy theories, and leaking proven falsehoods to the media. They began pushing impeachment before he was even sworn into office. This must end. Congress needs to get back to work.
"Chrissy Houlahan is now an integral part of the Washington swamp, beholden to the extremists and special interests who bankrolled her deceptive campaign. Chrissy Houlahan pulled a bait-and-switch on voters in 2018. We won't let her get away with it again in 2020.
"In Congress, I will work hard to help reform our broken health care system, continue to cut taxes on families and small businesses, and seek out opportunities to reduce runaway federal spending. It's time we had a Congressman who is in Washington to do the work of the people, not the bidding of Nancy Pelosi."
