WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15), a member of the House Committee on the Judiciary and of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement Friday:
“Today, I voted to send articles of impeachment to the House of Representatives that will hold President Donald Trump accountable for his ongoing abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Fortunately, America’s Founders did not leave the people helpless to an executive’s abuses. Our Constitution provides the power of impeachment and removal. President Trump is on a constitutional crime spree, jeopardizing our national security and the integrity of our elections. We have no choice but to act.
“No critical fact in this investigation is in dispute. And this case is no longer about what the president did. We know what Donald Trump did; he admitted it. As these articles move to the full House of Representatives, this is now about what we must do to protect our national security and our elections.”
