Inhofe Statement on Speaker Pelosi's Impeachment Inquiry Announcement

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) made the following statement regarding Speaker Pelosi’s impeachment inquiry announcement:

“Democrats have been conducting an impeachment investigation for months, and they’ve been investigating President Trump since he took office. Today’s announcement by Speaker Pelosi, while an escalation of Democrat smear tactics, is nothing new. It just proves, yet again, that they are desperate and singularly focused on discrediting and delegitimizing President Trump, no matter what, in spite of his successes with the economy, military and judges.”
