Washington, DC -- Representative Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) released the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed H.Res. 660, which establishes procedures for the House committees to continue their ongoing impeachment inquiry. The resolution provides for the next phase of the inquiry, including the format of open, public hearings and due process protections for the President.

“The evidence that the President of the United States endangered our national security and used his office for personal gain prompted me to advocate that Congress use all means at its disposal to investigate what happened,” said Representative Sherrill. “My vote today supports the procedures that will ensure the American people understand this investigative process and will hear the evidence in an open and public forum.”

Representative Mikie Sherrill is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and served in the United States Navy for nearly ten years. After leaving the Navy, she served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey.
