STATEMENT OF REP. DANNY K. DAVIS ON IMPEACHMENT
Washington, DC - Madam Speaker, on January 6, the President of the United States, in a last desperate attempt to illegally hold on to his office, incited a mob he had called into existence, to march on this House to prevent the votes of my constituents, the historic votes of the people of Georgia, the votes of the people from Philadelphia, and Detroit, and Milwaukee from being counted. In fact, he did not want the votes of any of the citizens of the United States to be counted. Instead, he wanted this House and our colleagues in the Senate to disenfranchise our constituents and in defiance of the Constitution, the law and the most basic precepts of democracy and justice, name him as President of these United States for four more years. The immensity of this crime is still sinking in our collective conscience. He failed, and now, it is time to him accountable for his actions and thereby preserve the right of my constituents, and the constituents of every Member of this body to determine their future and the future of our nation.
Madam Speaker, this should not be a difficult vote to cast, it should be one which we cast with pride, one which will be recorded with honor for history.
