impeachment

WASHINGTON, D.C.--   U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow released this statement following the U.S. House of Representatives vote to impeach President Donald Trump. 

“Last week, our nation experienced a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol inspired and encouraged by the current President of the United States. Our country cannot heal and move forward without accountability and justice. When the article of impeachment comes before the Senate, I intend to support removing Donald Trump from office.”

DETROIT, MI--   U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement on the House of Representatives’ vote to impeach President Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection:

“Donald Trump violated his oath of office. His reprehensible actions and rhetoric incited a violent, deadly attack on the Capitol and on our democracy. It is outrageous and unacceptable. We must hold him accountable for his actions and send a very clear signal for the future that this dangerous behavior can never be tolerated.

WASHINGTON, D.C.--   Rep. Jack Bergman issued the following statement:

"The electoral process in Congress has appropriately taken place as provided by our Constitution and laws. With one week remaining before Vice President Joe Biden takes office, today’s move to impeach the President will certainly only further divide our Nation and undoubtedly delay or derail legislation that would help our constituents.
