Murray: “Now that the House has rightly moved to impeach him, we should act quickly in the Senate to convict President Trump, remove him from office, and bar him from holding office again”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) issued the following statement on the U.S. House of Representatives vote to impeach President Trump.

“As I’ve said, there can be no looking away from what played out before our eyes last week. We owe it to our country today and for the future to make it unequivocally clear: any elected official who stands up for the power of force over the power of democracy has broken their oath of office. The President encouraged and incited insurrection, which was intended to interfere with the peaceful transfer of power. Now that the House has rightly moved to impeach him, we should act quickly in the Senate to convict President Trump, remove him from office, and bar him from holding office again.”
