Statement via Office of Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md-5)
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) released the following statement in response to a White House letter asserting the Administration will continue to stonewall and obstruct the House’s impeachment inquiry:
“No one is above the law, not even President Trump. The letter sent by the White House yesterday is the latest example of this Administration’s efforts to stonewall an investigation into the President’s abuse of power and obstruct justice. The evidence shows that the President betrayed our nation by encouraging foreign interference in our election, undermining our democracy and national security.
“The American people deserve the facts, and the House will not be deterred in our effort to get to the bottom of the President’s conduct. I stand with the Committee Chairs and their staff as they work to do so. I continue to urge Congressional Republicans to honor their oath of office and work with us to defend our democracy. This is not an issue of party or politics – it is about our Constitution, the rule of law, and the security of our nation. House Democrats will continue to pursue this inquiry with the seriousness and solemnity it deserves.”
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
