Dem Rep. Dingell On Polls Opposing Impeachment: "I Wasn't Elected To Do What Was Popularly Right"

|

Dem Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) reacts to a poll that shows support for impeachment and removal is dropping in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. FOX News reports: Impeachment and removal is opposed by 50.8 percent of voters in Michigan, 52.2 percent of voters in Pennsylvania, and 57.9 percent of voters in Wisconsin, according to the Firehouse/Optimus December Battleground State Poll.

"A lot of evidence that the president did hold up money to the Ukraine that had been appropriated by the Congress in exchange for investigating a potential political candidate," Dingell said Tuesday on FOX News.

"This is a sad day for our country," Dingell told FNC hosts Bill Hemmer and Heather Childers. "And those kinds of numbers that you just quoted I told people we need to be transparent and we have to talk about why it matters. But there are two things happening today. One, on the impeachment, I wasn't elected to do what was popularly right. I was elected to protect our constitution and our democracy. And that's what my vote is going to reflect. Have we in some way endangered our national security? And I think things that I've seen and the obstruction of justice lead me to be very concerned."
