Rep. Ben Ray Lujan
Lujan supports Trump impeachment

Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, D-N.M., assistant Speaker of the House, released a statement Monday declaring his support to impeach President Donald Trump.

“I support moving forward with an impeachment inquiry, which will continue to uncover the facts for the American people and hold this president accountable,” Lujan said.

Lujan posted his statement on Facebook and his official website.

“The Trump presidency is creating grave national security concerns. Our country's intelligence agencies have confirmed that the Russian government attacked America during the 2016 elections,” he said in a statement posted on social media.

Lujan said he reached his decision after reading the Muller Report and was convinced Trump’s campaign had ties to the Russian government.

“When Special Counsel Mueller released his report, I read it in full. I was alarmed by the Trump campaign and the Trump White House's brazen disregard for the rule of law. The report detailed sustained and frequent attempts by the Trump campaign to establish ties to the Russian government and an eagerness to benefit from hacked information stolen from our fellow Americans."

He said he was certain Trump attempted to obstruct justice during the Muller investigation.
