This President Must Be Held Accountable

Today, I gave remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives on why I will vote to impeach President Trump.

You can view my full remarks below:

“Let us not mince words about what happened last week: it was a violent attempt to interrupt our democratic process.

“It was a targeted blow at the most essential process that makes us a democracy. And it was directly and specifically incited by the President of the United States.

“For years, we have been asked to turn a blind eye to the criminality, corruption, and blatant disregard for the rule of law from this tyrant in the White House.

“We as a nation can no longer look away.

“The President not only incited an insurrection against our government, but has in word and deed, led a rebellion.

“We cannot simply move past this or turn the page. For us to be able to survive as a functioning democracy, there has to be accountability. The very administration officials who have been complicit in his crimes cannot be relied upon.

“We must impeach and remove this President from office immediately so that he cannot threaten our democracy and the world any longer or hold public office ever again.
