LWVUS Statement Regarding Support for Impeachment

Public Statement
Date of Release or Mention: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2021

"Last week, our nation saw horrific events unfold on the United States Capitol and for the world to see as armed white supremacist militias attacked a joint session of Congress meeting to count and certify the electoral college results of the 2020 Presidential Election. These individuals acted under the direction of President Trump, who has breached his oath of office to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States. President Trump is unfit to serve in the highest office of the land and should be disqualified from running for any political office in the future. We must hold him accountable for his actions.

Contact your Senators and ask them to support the removal of President Trump through impeachment and conviction: http://participate.lwv.org/.../dia/action4/common/public/... "
