BEND THE ARC: HOUSE MUST VOTE TO IMPEACH TRUMP FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR DEMOCRACY

Washington, D.C. – Following the House Judiciary Committee’s vote today to approve articles of impeachment against President Trump, Stosh Cotler, CEO of Bend the Arc: Jewish Action, released the following statement:

“By voting for articles of impeachment against President Trump, the House Judiciary Committee has taken an important step toward showing the American people that no one, including the President, is above the law. President Trump putting his own political interests ahead of the nation’s underscores the existential threat to democracy that his ongoing corrupt and authoritarian behavior represents. As American Jews, we recognize the danger of leaders who consolidate power to protect themselves, punish their enemies, and attempt to place themselves above accountability.

“Now that the Judiciary Committee has made the necessary decision to advance the impeachment process, we call on all members of the House to fulfill their constitutional and moral duty. Congress must vote for impeachment to hold this President and his administration accountable for their abuses of power — the future of our democracy demands it.”
