Heinrich Statement On President Trump’s Call With President Zelensky

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 25, 2019) – U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) a member of the Senate Armed Services and Intelligence Committees, issued the following statement on the transcript of President Trump’s phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky released today:

“This transcript is hard evidence that President Trump is running our government like a criminal enterprise. He has enlisted both his personal attorney and the U.S. Attorney General to coordinate with a foreign government to interfere in our election. President Trump’s misconduct is a direct assault on American democracy, and Congress must act to prevent him from irreparably harming the foundations of our government and our national security. This threat is unfolding before our eyes and directly exposes President Trump’s disregard for our country and the office of the presidency. Moving forward with impeachment proceedings is not only the right thing to do, but it is our constitutional duty.”
