Oklahoma’s only Democrat in Congress, Kendra Horn, reacted to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment announcement on Twitter. She said, in part,  “This should be a detailed and responsible investigation and not one conducted in a media circus.”

Horn also tweeted that testimony from the Acting Director of National Intelligence, Joseph Maguire, will be QUOTE “essential to help us learn what happened and when.” Maguire is withholding a whistleblower complaint he is required to give to Congress about a conversation between President Trump and the leader of Ukraine.

 Horn did not say whether she supports Pelosi’s decision, and she has not commented on the President’s actions. 

On The Other Side:

Tulsa Representative Kevin Hern released this statement following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement to begin an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump:

“The left has proven that they can and will spin anything into an impeachment frenzy. Their MO is to call for impeachment first and sort through the facts later. They’ve wasted their first 9 months in the majority – they have no legislative accomplishments to speak of. Instead of showing leadership for the American people, they cannot take their focus away from impeachment and halting President Trump’s success. Their caucus is dysfunctional, chaotic, and blind to the desires of the American people.”
