Maloney Votes to Impeach President Trump

Washington, D.C. – Today, a bipartisan majority of the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump for willful incitement of insurrection, following a violent attack by a mob – provoked by President Trump – during Congress’s Constitutionally-mandated counting of the Electoral Votes for the 2020 election.

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) voted to impeach President Donald Trump, and released the following statement:

“One week ago, we saw the gravest betrayal in American history of the presidential oath of office. The commander-in-chief incited a violent attack on our Capitol during the tabulation of the Electoral College vote.

“I was a witness to these events. He did this to overturn the results of a valid American presidential election. The resulting violence caused incalculable damage and loss of life, including of a Capitol Police officer.

“These actions demand his immediate impeachment and removal as provided by the Constitution. This action must be taken now to separate the President immediately from the awesome powers of his office that he might yet misuse to overturn the will of the people and the peaceful transfer of power.”

Last night, the House of Representatives passed a bipartisan Resolution calling on the Vice President to convene and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the fourth section of the 25th Amendment, declaring the President incapable of executing the duties of his office. As such, the Vice President would immediately exercise powers as acting President. Read Rep. Maloney’s Statement on the Resolution here.
