Statement: President Trump Impeached In The U.S. House Again

The Arizona Democratic Party Reacts To Trump’s Impeachment In the U.S. House

“Last Wednesday, we watched in horror as the U.S. Capitol Building was stormed by violent insurrectionists at the behest of President Trump. One week later, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed its Article of Impeachment of the President with bipartisan support, recognizing that the President represents an immediate danger to our country.

We are grateful to all members of the U.S. House of Representatives who have stood up and cast their historic vote to protect our nation and this Democratic Republic. We are especially proud of our Democratic Representatives for their loud and clear voice calling for this impeachment and holding the President and his enablers accountable for the events of last week and the unfortunate and untimely deaths of American citizens. Our elected representatives all swore an oath to defend the constitution from threats foreign and domestic. Today’s vote is an extension of that solemn promise.

Only the swift deliverance of accountability and the deliberate stroke of justice will allow our country to begin the process of moving forward and healing. We simply cannot turn the page until we have properly dealt with the President’s betrayal.”
