Rep. Sarbanes on Bipartisan Vote to Impeach President Trump

WASHINGTON, DC – Greek-American Congressman John Sarbanes, who represents Maryland's Third Congressional District, issued a statement about the bipartisan vote in the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump. His statement follows:

“This week, I joined my colleagues in a bipartisan vote to impeach President Trump for inciting a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, attempting to disrupt the counting of validly certified electoral results from the 2020 election, and endangering the health, safety and security of the American people.

“After the President refused to resign and after Vice President Pence failed to invoke the 25th Amendment, Congress had no choice but to proceed with an article of impeachment to remove Donald Trump from office.

“The U.S. Capitol is a symbol of freedom and democracy — not just for Americans, but for people around the world. Impeaching President Trump is a declaration to the world that when there is an attack on our democracy — whether it comes from without or, tragically in this instance, when it comes from within — we will respond to the threat and we will do what is necessary to defend and strengthen our democracy.

“Every moment that Donald Trump remains in office, he presents a grave danger to our country. The Senate must move swiftly to convict the President and protect America.”

Rep. Sarbanes’ remarks on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in support of impeachment are available online:
