DeLauro Floor Remarks Urging Colleagues to Impeach the President

WASHINGTON Today, Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (CT-03) delivered the following remarks on the House Floor in support of impeaching the president. A video of DeLauro’s remarks can be found here.

On November 3, the American people voted overwhelmingly for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to serve as President and Vice President of the United States. The country was about to enter a new era, with great hope for change. Yet, with a decisive mandate and majority, the president used untruthful claims to end the completion of the Constitutional process counting electoral votes, making Joe Biden President of the United States.

Not accepting the will of the American people, the President unleashed the most horrific violence that overwhelmed the security forces at this Capitol, which was overrun for the first time since 1812, putting the lives of so many at risk, a day of infamy. This impeachment will be viewed as a transcendent vote, where all will be judged.

Vote to impeach the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
