Foster releases video on Congress’s Constitutional responsibility to investigate Trump
Mason, Ohio – Today, Nikki Foster, Democratic candidate for Ohio’s 1st Congressional District, released a video calling on Congress to fulfill the oath they took to protect and defend the Constitution, just as Foster did in the Air Force.
Script: I’m Nikki Foster. I’m running for Congress in Ohio. When I joined the Air Force, I swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Congress did, too. And I believe they need to fulfill their oath and begin impeachment proceedings against the President. In the military, when there’s evidence of conduct unbecoming of an officer, you go through a process. It’s called a court-martial–to uncover the facts. And when there’s evidence that the President committed crimes, we must begin impeachment proceedings to uncover the truth. Because no one is above the law. Last Monday, Foster announced her campaign and immediately threw National Republicans into “a state of panic about Congressman Steve Chabot’s re-election bid.”
