Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following is a statement from U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) on the speaker of the House asking the House Judiciary Committee to move forward with drafting articles of impeachment against the president of the United States:

“In forming our great nation, the framers of our Constitution instilled in us, as members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the sole power to impeach a president if the need were ever to arise. As some of our nation’s top constitutional law experts said yesterday, President Trump has abused the power of his office and – for the sake of our republic – must be held accountable.”
