I believe that the President and Vice President may well have committed impeachable offenses. But with so many important issues facing this country and so much work to be done, I am concerned about the great deal of time multiple impeachment trials would take away from the Congress working on the problems of the country.
Translation: My getting re-elected is much more important than my loyalty to defend The Constitution.
I certainly do believe in holding this Administration accountable and upholding the Constitution and the rule of law. That’s why last year I called for the President to be censured for his authorization of the illegal wiretapping program.
Translation: I’m all for theatrics. Just don’t ask me to actually get something done.

When you say …” …But with so many important issues facing this country and so much work to be done … my answer is: There is no more important issue facing this country. None.
