Impeachment Expert: “I contend that no matter which person won the election in 2016, we would be talking about impeachment.” (Detroit Today, Nov. 18)


Congresswoman Debbie Dingell: “Getting the facts and having the American people see a transparent process matters.” (Detroit Today, Nov. 14)


Rep. Rashida Tlaib: “Doing nothing at this point wasn’t an option.” (Detroit Today, Nov. 14)


Sen. Gary Peters: “There has to be credibility in the process.” (Detroit Today, Nov. 6)


GOP Rep. Fred Upton: “I Want the Answers to the Questions” (Detroit Today, Oct. 2)

I’m anxious to see how the process unfolds. The different committees, there’s not going to be one as there has been before, just the Judiciary Committee, whereas back in the 70’s, [former U.S. Senator] Sam Ervin, just the [Watergate] Select Committee. Let’s really look at all the details, ask lots of questions and see where it takes us.
