Nearly 300 National Security Officials Sign Letter Calling For Trump To Be Impeached

The drums of impeachment are sounding louder after nearly 300 former U.S. national security and foreign policy officials signed an open letter calling for an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, The Washington Post reports.

The signatures were gathered by National Security Action, an organization founded by officials from the Obama administration concerned about Trump’s “reckless leadership.” The list also includes many others who served as career officials in Republican administrations, according to The Post.

“To be clear, we do not wish to prejudge the totality of the facts or Congress’ deliberative process,” the statement says. “At the same time, there is no escaping that what we already know is serious enough to merit impeachment proceedings.”

The former national security officials said they had largely avoided politics throughout their public service, but they said allegations revealed in the whistleblower complaint demanded a response — and further investigation.

The House launched an impeachment inquiry after a whistleblower revealed that Trump tried to pressure the Ukrainian government to dig up dirt on Democratic rival Joe Biden.
