Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-Mont., on Monday released a statement vowing to file articles of impeachment against David Chipman if he’s confirmed as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
In the first article of impeachment, Rosendale objects to Chipman’s past work lobbying on behalf of a gun control advocacy group, saying that this shows his “failure to support and defend the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.” The second article of impeachment claims that Chipman made false statements to Congress in sworn written responses, saying that although he answered “No,” when asked if he had ever lost or had a firearm stolen, some of his former colleagues claim that his service weapon was once stolen from his car.
