Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) issued the following statement on the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives:

“My colleagues on the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees presented a clear case to the American people that was supported by evidence and facts. It’s clear that the President used his immense power for personal gain and then obstructed a lawful Congressional investigation into his wrongdoings. The President’s actions put our democracy and national security at risk. Congress is endowed with the responsibility to act when the President has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. I support these articles of impeachment because I took a solemn oath to defend the Constitution. No one – not even the President of the United States - is above the law. I call on Leader McConnell to take every possible step to ensure an impartial, non-partisan hearing in the Senate.”
