Rep. Quigley: ‘Impeachment Inquiry Will Help Educate, Inform the American Public’

‘They bolster our legal arguments in front of the courts to obtain unredacted reports, get subpoenas answered and force people to testify’

EXCERPT:

QUIGLEY: “Well, I think to the public there may not be a distinction, but the distinction that we see is the Watergate hearings began on an inquiry and I think they do two things for us. I think they bolster our legal arguments in front of the courts to obtain unredacted reports, get subpoenas answered and force people to testify. I also think the hearings that will come with the impeachment inquiry will help educate, inform the American public. One of the things that struck me last week was the power of the Special Counsel’s message when Mr. Mueller said what he said. He was just reading from his own report. But it’s clear that a large amount of the American public took Mr. Barr to his word that the report exonerated him. So I think the inquiry serves two purposes. It helps us with our oversight function and it educates the American public. And I think moves them where we should be going, to a full-scale investigation of the President.”
