MOMTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVM) - Alabama Governor Kay Ivey is speaking out in support of President Donald Trump.

The Republican governor released a statement saying, in part,

We are witnessing an injustice on our democracy. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in Congress are making an attempt to impeach the president through the press via leaks and conjecture. This appears to be purely political when you offer no due process and zero transparency. When we elected President Trump in 2016, Alabamians and the American people sought progress. We wanted stronger infrastructure, a booming economy, and security for all American citizens. President Trump and his Administration are fighting to do that. Congress has a job to do on behalf of the American people, not this political charade we are currently witnessing.
Governor Kay Ivey

Gov. Ivey calls on Congress to tackle issues the way Alabama does, “through strong bipartisan efforts.”

She concludes her statement by saying that President Trump has her full support moving forward.
