Upholding the Constitution
I am committed to strictly interpreting the Constitution in light of its original meaning and the common understanding of the intentions of our Founding Fathers who wrote and ratified this founding document. Our Constitution is timeless and is just as legitimate today as when it was first written. The principles the Constitution embodies and the system of government it establishes has allowed our exceptional nation to flourish. When I was sworn into Congress, I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and I carry a copy of the Constitution with me in my pocket as constant reminder to uphold its principles.
I believe that our great Founding Fathers implicitly understood the threat posed to individual liberties by a large and intrusive federal government. One of the ways the Founding Fathers sought to limit the power of the federal government was by reserving powers to the individual states, and to the people themselves. I am a firm believer in states' rights, which is why I am a proud member of the Tenth Amendment Caucus, which focuses on restoring the critical balance between the powers of the states and those of the federal government.

“The House impeachment effort was illegitimate from the outset, and President Trump was correct to describe it as a witch hunt brought by bitter partisans who never accepted that Americans preferred him to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.”
“When the president said that ‘Members of Congress must never forget that the only victories that matter in Washington are victories that are delivered for the American people’ that rang true to me, because that’s been my life here in this Congress-to achieve victories that are ‘delivered for the American people.’”
California pacifists’ amendments “would tie the President’s hands, and this would put Americans in danger.”

“I’d like to see the President stand here before us at the State of the Union Address, February 4th, and be able to announce to the world that he’s been exonerated by the United States Senate.”
“House Democrats might want to send the Iranians pallets of cash like President Appeaser-In-Chief Obama did, but I stand with letting President Trump, our Commander-in-Chief, make the tough calls and take the swift and certain actions that he determines are necessary to protect our nation, our citizens, and our interests.”
Washington D.C- Congressman Steve King releases the following statement after voting against both of the sham impeachment articles introduced by House Democrats. The Articles of Impeachment passed the House of Representatives on a vote of 230-197 (Article One) and 229-198 (Article Two). Not a single Republican voted in favor of the Impeachment Articles; in fact, the Democrats’ Impeachment Articles were so meritless that a handful of conscientious Democrats were willing to cross party lines to join Republicans in voting against them.
