Press Release

WASHINGTON – Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) released the following statement regarding impeachment proceedings. 

“Last week, we found out that the president himself may have put our national security at risk, invited another foreign government to interfere in our election, and used American tax dollars to further his own political agenda.

“Anyone willing to sacrifice the national security interests of the United States for their own benefit is unfit to be president. If these allegations are true, it’s time for the House to open impeachment proceedings.

"I'm keeping my focus on the issues that affect people in the Central Valley every day like the high costs of health care, employment opportunities, and access to water. My colleagues on the relevant committees will keep leading their charges as I lead mine. But during a time like this, I feel it's my responsibility to add my voice to the chorus calling for a return to accountability, transparency, and honor in government."
