WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement in response to a White House letter asserting the Administration will continue to stonewall and obstruct the House’s impeachment inquiry: 
   
“No one is above the law, not even President Trump. The letter sent by the White House yesterday is the latest example of this Administration’s efforts to stonewall an investigation into the President’s abuse of power and obstruct justice. The evidence shows that the President betrayed our nation by encouraging foreign interference in our election, undermining our democracy and national security.

“The American people deserve the facts, and the House will not be deterred in our effort to get to the bottom of the President’s conduct. I stand with the Committee Chairs and their staff as they work to do so. I continue to urge Congressional Republicans to honor their oath of office and work with us to defend our democracy. This is not an issue of party or politics – it is about our Constitution, the rule of law, and the security of our nation. House Democrats will continue to pursue this inquiry with the seriousness and solemnity it deserves.”
