September 24, 2019
Press Release
“It’s time for Congress to exercise its constitutional authority and impeach the president in order to protect the rule of law and our democracy.”

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement:

“For months, the President of the United States has failed to respect the authority endowed to Congress by the Constitution. He has directed members of his Administration and former campaign officials to show contempt for Congressional subpoenas and investigations. The reports of a whistleblower complaint clearly call into question the oath the president took to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States above political, financial, and personal gain. The president has done more than enough to meet the legal standards to justify impeachment. It’s time for Congress to exercise its constitutional authority and impeach the president in order to protect the rule of law and our democracy. I will continue to uphold my responsibility to govern and carry out my legislative agenda, but no one – not even the President of the United States - is above the law.”
