WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI-13) release the following statement regarding the House of Representatives formally moving forward with impeachment proceedings of President Trump:

“From the first day of this session, I’ve called to uphold our nation’s law of the land, our United States Constitution. This means impeaching the President for his criminal and impeachable offenses. I made this decision early on because the continued lawlessness and king-like activity out of the White House endangers our democracy.  Unfortunately, this President continues to put the lives of Americans in jeopardy by disregarding the well-being of people across the country, putting his personal interests before the American people he took an oath to serve.  In light of today’s news, I say, “Tick-Tock, Mr. President.” The nation has joined our call to hold him accountable with his recent extortion of Ukraine.

“We have done enough investigations that have helped in uncovering many of his illegal acts and impeachable offenses. These are days, months, and years we cannot get back for the people who sent us here to be a check on this dangerous administration and push forth legislation on issues they care about. Congress must act swiftly on articles of impeachment. We are a nation of laws and no one, especially the President, is above them. Impeachment is a very serious matter, but the actions of this President and his disregard for a co-equal branch of government and the laws he should be following call for this serious response. As members of Congress, impeachment is our only answer at this point.”
