Signs on to resolution condemning Speaker’s actions, calls for roll call vote on sham transparency resolution

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) today announced he has signed on to two measures aimed at holding Speaker Pelosi and the current impeachment process accountable in advance of the sham impeachment-related resolution coming to a Floor vote later this week.

 

The first measure is a resolution introduced by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) that would express the House’s disapproval of Speaker Pelosi conducting the impeachment process in a closed and classified setting. The resolution also requires that any and all further inquiry proceedings and evidence gathering occur in a public setting while also providing members appropriate notice of any hearings.

 

“This entire ‘impeachment inquiry’ process has been an ends-justify-the-means sham,” Congressman Keller said.  “For 36 days, Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Schiff have kept the American people and 75 percent of Congress in the dark while they try to overturn the will of the people expressed in the 2016 election. All proceedings and evidence gathering should be done in public with full, unabridged minority party rights and due process for the President at all stages.”

 

The second measure is a letter led by Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) requiring that the sham impeachment resolution being offered by Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats be voted on by a call of the roll, meaning each member would have to stand up and announce their vote when called on by name.

 

“This is one of the most important votes members of the House of Representatives will ever take. It should be done in an open and transparent manner with everyone in the country left without a doubt about where their member of Congress stands on impeachment,” Congressman Keller added.
