From numerous news sources: Rep. Debbie Dingell made TV appearances on Fox News and MSNBC, her spokeswoman, Maggie Rousseau, said. On Fox News, Dingell said it was clear the White House had tried to “block key witnesses from testifying” as part of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

According to a video clip that Fox News posted online, Dingell said she hadn’t made up her mind on whether to support impeachment but she added that she was “deeply disturbed” by the situation.

The United States can’t have a president that’s using national security for his own “political gain,” Dingell said during the appearance.

“This vote’s hard for me,” she added. “My stomach’s upside down.”

Dingell was one of multiple U.S. House members from Michigan who didn’t provide a definitive answer when The Detroit News asked how they will vote on the articles of impeachment.

Two other Democrats from Michigan — U.S. Reps. Haley Stevens, D-Rochester Hills, and Elissa Slotkin, D-Holly — have also not said definitively how they will vote. Both Stevens and Slotkin won districts that had been held by Republicans in 2018.

Republicans, including Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox, have accused Democrats of being focused on politics during the impeachment inquiry and trying to “undo the 2016 election.”
