Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Jesús “Chuy” García (IL-04) issued the following statement after the House Judiciary Committee introduced two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress:

“The American people have heard the facts. President Trump engaged in bribery to pressure Ukraine to investigate a political rival in the 2020 election. He put his political and personal gain ahead of national security and the integrity of our democracy. President Trump then tried to cover up his misdeeds to prevent the American people from hearing the truth.

“Members of Congress take an oath to support and defend the Constitution. It is our duty to protect our democracy—a job I take very seriously. President Trump violated the Constitution and no matter how he tries to spin it, he must be held accountable. No one, not even the President, is above the law.”
