Florida Democrats Statement on Impeachment Proceedings Vote
Today the House of Representatives voted to move forward with the impeachment proceedings.
Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, released the following statement:
"Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats have conducted this investigation with the highest standards for the rule of law. Meanwhile, Donald Trump and his Republican acolytes have conducted an obstruction and contempt for justice campaign. From barging into secure briefings, hiding behind executive privilege, to disregarding subpoenas, Trump and Republicans have proven why this impeachment investigation is needed.
"The more we have learned about Trump's actions, the more it confirms that he has committed acts that are worthy of being impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives. Today's vote was an important step in getting to the truth and holding Trump and his Republican allies accountable."
