       Internal Affairs: Senator Duffy
       The committee met multiple times to discuss the allegations raised against
       President Meston. They have prepared an official statement:
              The Internal Affairs Committee investigated the accusations of
              misfeasance, malfeasance, and nonfeasance that were raised against the
              ASUAF President. Through their investigation, they were unable to find
              enough substance to any of the accusations to present formal charges.
              Therefore, the article of impeachment and the judgment were not written
              by the committee. The committee wishes to encourage all ASUAF officials
              to use discretion in their creation of and forwarding of electronic
              documents and content.
