Moms Leader Commends Integrity of Every House Judiciary Committee Member Who Voted to Impeach President Trump Today
“America’s moms are appalled by President Trump’s abuse of power, the lies he and members of his administration told to cover it up, and the many ways he violated the law by obstructing the congressional investigation into these crimes. We commend the U.S. House of Representatives for its thorough and fair investigation, which confirmed beyond any doubt that President Trump tried to use his influence and taxpayers’ money to coerce Ukraine leaders into interfering in our elections and then tried to cover up his self-serving actions. This was a blatant abuse of power by the President and a clear violation of his oath to ‘preserve, protect and defend’ our constitution.
“The House Judiciary Committee did its duty today by passing two articles of impeachment. We commend all Committee members who voted for them for their integrity. Our hope is that the full House will do the same, with a bipartisan vote, since every Democratic and every Republican lawmaker should put country ahead of political party.
“We owe it to our children to hold our leaders—all of our leaders—accountable to the people and to ensure that all members of Congress uphold their oath of office. When our elected leaders abuse their power for personal gain, we must protect our democracy. That is why MomsRising members have raised their voices to protect our democracy and why last month MomsRising joined with By the People, MoveOn and CREDO Action on an impeachment-focused TV ad in which children remind Congress that ‘our future is in your hands.’ View the spot here.”
