WASHINGTON, D.C. — In the wake of yesterday’s violent insurrection against the United States Capitol, Congressman Steven Horsford is joining with Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI), Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA), Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and other Members of Congress to co-sponsor Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump.

“It is clear that Donald Trump cannot remain in the presidency for another day. If Vice President Pence and the Cabinet are unwilling to fulfill their Constitutional duty and invoke the 25th Amendment, Congress must act.” said Congressman Steven Horsford. “The Constitution provides that the U.S. House of Representatives shall have the sole power of Impeachment. This is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. The incitement of domestic terrorism against our nation’s Capitol was a direct attempt to subvert and deny the will of the American people. Donald Trump is a risk to our national security, democratic institutions, and the Constitution itself. 

“I will be co-sponsoring both Congressman Cicilline’s and Congresswoman Omar’s Articles of Impeachment. Donald Trump must be removed from office immediately.”
