TYLER, Texas–Hank Gilbert (D-Tyler) on Saturday called on Congressman Louie Gohmert to stop defending president Trump and obstructing the impeachment process with conspiracy theories in wake of the announcement Trump won’t participate in the House impeachment process.
“Why is he still defending a man who won’t even defend himself,” Gilbert asked.
“He’s hollered that the President wasn’t being given a fair process, or the opportunity to defend himself, both of which were lies. Now, the President has been given and declined the opportunity to defend himself,” Gilbert said.
“Louie now needs to stop obstructing the process, stop spouting his conspiracy theories, and do his job on the Judiciary committee,” Gilbert said. “Gohmert needs to cut bait. As a lawyer, he should seriously consider what it really means that the president is refusing to answer the serious allegations against him,” Gilbert said.
“Our district deserves better,” Gilbert continued.
