Impeachment Investigation Remains on Hold

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

 


The impeachment investigation of Governor Robert Bentley will remain on hold, at least for the time being. The House Judiciary Committee met today to discuss the status of the probe, which was officially paused in November at the request of the then-Attorney General Luther Strange. However, the delay did not sit well with some committee members who said the committee should hurry up and make a decision on whether the governor committed any impeachable offenses. Committee members split evenly on a motion that would have kept the public activities halted on a "month-to-month" basis. Bentley has struggled to shake off a scandal after his fired law enforcement secretary last year accused him of having an affair with a staffer and interfering in law enforcement business. Bentley acknowledged making personal mistakes but denied an affair and the other allegations.
