Rep. Jason Crow Statement in Support of Articles of Impeachment
Congressman Jason Crow (CO-06) issued the following statement announcing his position on the Articles of Impeachment. He first announced his support for Articles of Impeachment yesterday at his town hall in Aurora.
“Over the last few months, the evidence has become clear: The President used the power of the presidency to coerce a foreign government into helping him for political gain.
“As a member of Congress in this historic time, I reflect on my experience as a soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan where I saw how unique American democracy really is. Over the past few years, I have also learned how fragile it can be.
“Our system of checks and balances only works when we fight to protect it. The President’s actions are a threat to our national security and the very foundation of our democracy.
“President Trump’s unprecedented abuse of power and obstruction of Congress leaves us with no choice but to proceed with impeachment. No man or woman is above the law in our country, including the president. It’s time for me to once again fulfill my oath to the Constitution.”
