Luján Statement on Articles of Impeachment

Washington, D.C. – U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) issued the following statement on the House of Representatives drafting two articles of impeachment against President Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress:

“This is a solemn day for our country, but the president’s brazen abuse of power demands action. The evidence is uncontested – President Trump put his own political interests ahead of the interests of our country by repeatedly inviting foreign interference in our elections.

“I took an oath to protect our country and protect our democracy and holding the president accountable for putting our security at risk is how I will fulfill that oath.”
