(Updated 11 a.m.) Alexandria’s congressman is planning to talk impeachment at a town hall meeting later this month.
Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) announced today that he will be holding the event on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 7-8:30 p.m., at the T.C. Williams High School auditorium.
“This month I will hold a town hall in Alexandria on the impeachment investigation,” Beyer said via Twitter. “I will be joined by legal and national security experts to help me answer your questions. See you there!”
The event is free and open to the public but attendees are asked to register online.
Beyer, an outspoken advocate of impeaching President Donald Trump, voted last week with his Democratic colleagues to set “procedures for open hearings as part of the impeachment investigation.”
“Today the House voted to let the American people hear directly from witnesses who saw President Trump engage in some of the worst abuses of power in the history of this country,” the Congressman said in a statement on Oct. 31. “Like my colleagues, I did not come to Congress to impeach anyone, but every one of us swore to defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic. We do not honor that oath by turning a blind eye to the President’s betrayal of our country.”
Trump has called the investigation a “witch hunt” and “just another Democrat hoax.”
