Congressman Josh Gottheimer issued the following statement on reports of a whistleblower complaint against the President regarding Ukraine:

As your Representative, I believe it is my utmost responsibility to both fight for my constituents and protect the Constitution. Without it, and the rule of law, our democracy cannot continue to thrive, as it has since our founding.

The serious allegations that have surfaced about communication between President Trump and the Ukrainian President put our national security at risk and merit an immediate inquiry. We must let the facts guide our work. Given the gravity of this moment, I will base my final judgment on whether impeachment is warranted on the information garnered through this inquiry, not on hearsay, social media, or conflicting news accounts. I’d urge the House Republicans to do the same.
