Underwood’s Reply to Constituent Urging “No” Vote on Impeachment

Here’s how Congresswoman Lauren Underwood replied:

Loren Underwood

Thank you for your message regarding the impeachment inquiry of President Trump. I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts on this sobering issue.

No one is above the law. Not the President, and not members of his Administration. As a Member of Congress, I take seriously my patriotic duty LoAdministration’s policies and conduct. I have done so on a number of issues of importance to our community including health care, climate change, and the humanitarian crisis at our southern border. I will continue to do so.

On October 31, 2019, I voted for and the House passed a resolution that laid out the process for the House’s deliberate and thorough impeachment inquiry. With public hearings and unprecedented transparency, the investigation aimed to uncover all the facts to guard against abuses of power at the highest levels of our government and to ensure foreign interference in our elections never happens again. Let me be clear—no one wins when Congress is compelled to investigate impeachment or bring about Articles of Impeachment. This is a tragedy for our country.

President Trump abused the power of the presidency when he solicited the President of Ukraine to take actions to interfere in the upcoming U.S. presidential election to harm his political rivals. Furthermore, the President and members of his Administration threatened our national security by withholding critical security assistance meant to counter Russian aggression. These undisputed facts show President Trump violated his oath to uphold the Constitution, endangered our national security, and undermined the integrity of our elections.

Disturbingly, these activities fit a pattern exhibited in the findings of the Special Counsel’s Report. The Report lays out substantial evidence that the President’s campaign worked with a foreign adversary to influence the 2016 election. I find this extremely concerning, especially given the well-documented foreign attacks on Illinois’ state election system.

On December 10, 2019, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee introduced a resolution containing two Articles of Impeachment based on the findings of the inquiry—(1) for Abuse of Power regarding the President’s solicitation of foreign interference in the 2020 election; and (2) for Obstruction of Congress as it carried out its constitutionally prescribed oversight duties. I am reviewing these articles and the underlying evidence closely over the coming days, and I assure you, I will keep your thoughts in mind as I do so.

While these proceedings continue, I remain focused on the critically important work before us: making health care more affordable and protecting access to care for people with preexisting conditions, protecting our environment and addressing climate change, and ending the suicide epidemic among veterans. I am also committed to ensuring my team and I are accessible and responsive to you. Please visit my West Chicago or Woodstock offices, or attend one of my many public events.

Thank you again for your message. I value hearing from you on these important issues that impact our community. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further thoughts or concerns.

  1. She takes a page from Dickie Durbin. He answers exactly like this. Says nothing! They are pompous asses that have staff write these unconnected rambling braggadocio voids.

  2. Why is everybody raging at Underwood?

    Because she is a. L. I. A. R.

  3. At start of 2nd paragraph, Underwood says: “No one is above the law.”

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Barak Hussein Obama’s Administration IS above the law. Such as (a very small sampling):

    – Eric Holder absolutely refusing to provide documents to Congress regarding his failed Fast and Furious gun running
    – Lois Lerner’s persons in the IRS illegally targeting conservative groups.
    – Hillary Clinton destroying and not providing over 30,000 emails subpeonad by Congress.
    – Hillary Clinton having staff destroy electronic devices subpeonad by Congress.
    – Members of DOJ and Federal Bureau illegally using the FISA to spy on American citizens.
    – The former leader of the Federal Bureau illegally leaking information to his friend who then leaked to the Press.
    – Barak Hussein Obama breaking a federal law by swapping a military traitor for Taliban prisoners.
    – Etc.

    The so-called impeachment process was started as a kangaroo court by a known liar Schiff who many times lied on national tv saying he had evidence and/or it would be provided showing that Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to win the election. Proven wrong by the Mueller report. The Democrat run impeachment inquiry and articles are a sham. No federal law(s) broken.

    Underwood and her Democrat colleagues would do well to examine and prosecute many people of Obama’s regime who broke laws over the 8 years of his reign in power.

  4. Bred – just curious — why do you use Obama’s middle name, but not Clinton’s? Or Trump’s? Or Lerner’s?

    Actually. Don’t answer – we all know why. The racism of you, DALA, and friends is embraced around here. SMDH.

  5. No one is above the law, not even our Underwood from the Underworld.

    Why is all her dough coming from outside the district?

  6. Alabama, sorry your commie friend Jeremy Corbyn just got trounced in Little Britain.

    When your candy-date Pete Buttigeig (pronounced Booty Judge), gets trounced by Corn Pop Biden, and Corn Pop in turn gets mopped up by the younger Trump, I WON’T feel sorry for you one little bit.

    But I will laugh at your incompetence and stupidity.

    I do pray that, someday soon, they’ll find a cure for your Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    So you won’t have to go through this again:

  7. People, ordinary citizens and the media, have regularly referred to our presidents at times using their middle names. Such as John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Lyndon Baines Johnson, Richard Milhous Nixon, George Herbert Walker Bush, etc.

    As did millions of Americans, I watched our previous president take his oath of office on live national TV using the name Barak Hussein Obama. A previous poster has a problem with referring to a president using that president’s stated name when taking the oath of office. Wonder why. Apparently Barak Hussein Obama wanted to use his middle name. He stated it. If he did not want to ever use his middle name, he could have appeared before a judge in a court and legally change his name to omit his middle name, “Hussein”, and just be Barak Obama.

  8. Acosta, Underwood, Jack Franks and some others need to resign!

    Jack Franks is a pro at swerve and deflect!

  9. Jack Franks supports both Acosta and Underwood and the people should be warned, that is one BIG FAT RED FLAG!

  10. Bred – LOL – a lot of people take oaths with their middle names.

    Yet you only use one of them.




  12. Joe Biden’s middle name is “Robinette”. Let’s all start referring to sleepy, dummy Joe as “Joe Robinette Biden”.

  13. No one is beyond the law like politicians lying about their residency, occupation, work history and where their financial support is coming from?

    Amazing how our countries moral and value systems have essentially ceased to exist.
