MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP >> Concerned citizens, grassroots activists, and residents of Pennsylvania's Congressional District 1 will gather from 5:00-6:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 6 to urge Bucks County Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick to support an impeachment inquiry based on the findings of the Mueller Report.
The event will begin at 5 p.m. outside of the Representative’s Langhorne office, and provide an opportunity for citizens to make their voices heard. Leaders from Bucks County Indivisible groups are scheduled to speak. More than 100 people are expected to attend.
“After Robert Mueller's statement last Wednesday, it is clear that he intended his report as an impeachment inquiry referral to Congress,” says Laura Rose, Grassroots Organizing Chair for PA Statewide Indivisible. “And it is up to us, the people of Pennsylvania's First Congressional District, to let our Congressman know that we support an inquiry and we want him to do so as well.”
"Robert Mueller said ‘if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination to whether the president did commit a crime," adds Karen Rodriguez, Political Action Chair for PA Statewide Indivisible. “By declaring that the investigation did NOT clear the president, by stating that the Department of Justice could not charge a sitting president, and by affirming that only a process outside of the Department of Justice could adjudicate the issue, Robert Mueller was clearly referring this case to Congress. It is the responsibility of Congress to determine if the President obstructed justice. And our Congressman must fulfill his responsibilities under the Constitution and his oath of office.”
