LINCOLN â€“ Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement on Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosiâ€™s recent announcement that she would launch an impeachment inquiry against President Donald J. Trump.
â€œNancy Pelosiâ€™s impeachment inquiry is the next of a long parade of desperate attempts by national Democrats to subvert the will of the American people and remove a duly elected president from office,â€� said Gov. Ricketts. â€œI appreciate the unprecedented transparency displayed by President Trump and his administration in releasing the call transcript and complaint. As Leader McConnell has said, Senate committees are already reviewing these materials â€˜through a fair, bipartisan, and regular process.â€™ National Democrats need to stop playing political games and respect the will of the voters.â€�
