Rep. Peter Welch Talks Whistleblower And Impeachment Proceedings

Oct 3, 2019

Congressman Peter Welch sits on the House Intelligence Committee, which is moving quickly with investigations into national security concerns raised by a whistleblower's complaint of President Trump's activities related to Ukraine and alleged solicitation of interference with the 2020 presidential election.

We're speaking with Rep. Welch on the logistics of the investigations and where the proceedings may be heading.

As Rep. Welch told VPR, his central question is: "Did the President essentially seek foreign assistance in his election, and [did he] do that at the expense of our national security?"
