WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following is a statement from U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) on the articles of impeachment released today:

"Public office is a public trust. And those who violate that trust must be held accountable. The evidence is clear: President Trump has abused the power of his office, put our national security at risk and blocked Congress's attempt to investigate his actions. No one in this country is above the law, not even the president. In order to protect the strength of our democracy, Congress has a duty to act."
