U.S. Representative Sharice Davids statement on impeachment of President Donald Trump
Office of United States Representative Sharice Davids (D-KS-03)
Representative Sharice Davids (KS-03) yesterday issued the following statement on her vote to impeachment President Donald Trump, which passed the House with bipartisan support:
“The attack on our nation’s Capitol last week was a direct attack on our democracy, and we have a president who not only condoned but encouraged it. Donald Trump has made it clear that he is unfit to serve as president of the United States. Moreover, he is a clear and present danger to our safety, security, and democracy.
“Today, I fulfilled my constitutional duty and voted to impeach Donald Trump. It’s my sincere hope that members of the Senate will put their country first and join us in removing him from office, as some Republican members of the House did today. Because while this is about removing a clear and present danger from the White House now, it’s also about 100 years from now and the precedent we set. We must make it clear that this president's actions will not be tolerated – not now, not ever – and that he won’t be allowed to stand in the way of our democracy any longer.
“Before we can move forward and begin to heal as a county, we need full accountability for those responsible for these attacks that resulted in five people dead, including a Capitol Police Officer, and many more injured. There are multiple ongoing investigations into the tragic events that occurred, and I remain committed to ensuring that every person who played a role in this insurrection is held accountable.”
