Congresswoman Lee Votes for Second Impeachment of Donald Trump

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee today released the following statement following the passage of H.Res. 24, An Article of Impeachment Charging President Trump with Incitement of Insurrection:  

“Today, I voted to impeach Donald Trump for a second time on charges of incitement of insurrection. This is historic and unprecedented, and the House took historic and unprecedented action to hold Trump accountable for this sedition.  

“Donald Trump has been, and continues to be a threat to our national security and our democracy. I urge the Senate and Mitch McConnell to do publicly what they know is right privately and swiftly begin the process of convicting Donald Trump. Some of my colleagues have hypocritically called for unity. I remind them that we should unify around the rule of law. We will never have peace and unity without accountability. Our democracy will prevail.”
