KY Impeachment Panel Plans To Resume Work Friday

Associated Press

A legislative panel reviewing impeachment petitions against Kentucky’s governor and attorney general plans to resume its work Friday. The House Impeachment Committee met for a second straight day Thursday. The panel went behind closed doors for nearly an hour. When they emerged, panel Chairman Jason Nemes said they will reconvene Friday.

The citizen’s petitions seek the ouster of Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear and Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Both leaders say the petitions are groundless. Beshear is targeted by multiple petitions for lockdowns he ordered on Kentuckians to try to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
