Last night, while in NY, I had a whirlwind tour of a number of studios - not least of which my good friend Stephen Colbert.
Suffice to say, this time, I declined his invitation to "repeat after me." I had a great time though, and if you haven't seen the interview, I'm sure it's available online.
However, I thought you'd be most interested in the fact that I took my argument for Impeachment Hearings straight into the heart of conservative media: Fox News.
Yes... they actually let me in the building. Twice.
On both Hannity and Colmes as well as this morning on Fox and Friends, I explained my belief that Congress has no choice but to address these's obvious and deliberate abuses of power.
I argued that we can protect our nation - and still adhere to the Constitution.
Here's the video:
It is our duty in Congress to uphold the law. It is, in part, what we were elected to do in office.
Naturally, there was some dispute as to my points - but that's more than reasonable. What's not reasonable is for us to table important investigations because it may - or may not - have an affect on the upcoming election. Nor is it reasonable to state that Congress cannot do more than one thing at a time.
In the last days, so many of you have written and called both my legislative office and my re-election campaign. Thank you so much for your words of support. I hope to continue to work on these issues throughout the rest of this session, and into my next term.
Congressman Robert Wexler
