Statement by Nathaly Arriola, Executive Director of Need to Impeach on Today’s Announcement

“Today is a monumental day for justice, democracy, and the American people. The importance of Speaker Pelosi’s announcement that the House of Representatives will begin drafting articles of impeachment against Donald Trump cannot be understated. It means Donald Trump is not above the law, and presidential crimes will not go unchecked by Congress. The evidence of Donald Trump’s criminal schemes is staggering and unprecedented. The facts facing the American people should give members of Congress no choice but to support Trump’s removal from office. In the months ahead, the Senate must do its job and hold Trump accountable by removing him from office. Not doing so would be a violation of their constitutional responsibility and breach of their oaths of office,” said Nathaly Arriola, Executive Director of Need to Impeach.
