Congressman Hurd rejects Democrats arguments for impeachment
GOP Rep. Will Hurd of Texas is not willing to impeach President Trump on the evidence so far presented to Congress about the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.This is a good decision by Will Hurd. I hate to see him leave Congress and wish him well. I personally do not believe there was anything wrong with Trump's phone call and that Joe Biden should be investigated for his dealings and his son's dealing with a corrupt organization that was recently indicted by Ukraine prosecutors. I think it is absurd for Democrats who pushed the bogus Russian collusion hoax for over two years to argue that one of their candidates is immune from investigation. It smacks of an obvious double standard.
Hurd is one of a handful of vocal Trump critics within the GOP in Congress. He is also not running for reelection in 2020.
Hurd delivered his verdict on Thursday on the fifth and likely final day of testimony for witnesses in the House impeachment investigation into Trump's July 25 phone call. The impeachment investigation began after a CIA whistleblower alleged that Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine to secure investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden.
