Congress must pursue the truth
Representatives in Washington swear an oath to uphold and enforce the Constitution and rule of law. That includes ensuring the executive branch operates within these norms.
Unfortunately, some past presidents have crossed criminal and ethical lines: IranContra, the bombing of Cambodia, Watergate, Monica Lewinsky.
Safeguarding democracy isn’t the responsibility of one political party or another. It’s the duty of every elected official.
There’s now a volume of credible information questioning whether the current president exceeded legal and/or ethical boundaries. All in Congress should support the pursuit of the truth, regardless of the findings and their consequences.
Our democratic principles are more important than any individual.
