Luján Statement on the U.S. House of Representatives Moving Forward With Impeachment

Washington, D.C. – U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement on the House drafting articles of impeachment against President Trump:

“The United States Congress has a responsibility to uphold our Constitution and protect this country from irrevocable harm. The American people have heard from firsthand witnesses of President Trump’s corruption and seen his abuses of power laid bare. It is now an uncontested fact: The President put his political interests ahead of the interests of our nation. Inaction in the face of this lawlessness would be a dereliction of our oath of office, which is why the President’s behavior mandates that the House moves forward with articles of impeachment.”
