WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Anthony Brindisi has voted ‘yes’ on the resolution to set the rules for the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump.

The resolution is meant to create a more transparent process, making transcripts of depositions public and allowing both Republicans and Democrats the right to question witnesses, propose witnesses, issue subpoenas, and seek votes on their requests.

“The bottom-line here is that the already-in-process investigation is moving along and delivering more questions than answers on both sides of the aisle. Since the investigation began, Democrats and Republicans in charge have failed to effectively come together in a constructive way that delivers what the public deserves: straight facts.

“My constituents want to judge things for themselves, and I support them. They want more information and public testimony. The only way to ensure this actually happens is to take the investigation into the public arena and shine a much-needed bright light. Doing so will allow both parties to finally call witnesses, the White House to rightfully be involved, and others to publicly respond to testimony heard in the wide open. Fair and open hearings will finally let Americans judge for themselves and –right now—I could not agree more. I want to judge for myself. We all do,” said Brindisi.

Under the resolution, the president would also have an opportunity to present his case, respond to evidence, submit written requests for additional testimony or other evidence, attend hearings, raise objections, and cross examine witnesses.
