Local reaction to announcement of impeachment articles
Local democrats and republicans provided comment after House Democrats unveiled two articles of Impeachment against President Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Both articles stem from allegations that the President pressured Ukraine’s leader for political purposes, leveraging military aid.
"Americans are very concerned about the security of our country and it’s not a game, it's our lives," says Scott Beilfuss with Mesa County Democrats.
"I think it's going to go to the full house and they might have trouble there because I think there are 29 or 30 congress people that are in districts that Trump won by double digits that are facing re-election in 2020," says Kevin McCarney with Mesa County Republicans.
