Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Joe Morelle released the following statement:

“Over the past few months, we have heard testimony from experts and public servants on the alarming allegations facing the president. Regrettably, it has become clear: President Trump has abused the powers of his public office, leveraged a foreign government for political benefit, and obstructed Congressional oversight of his conduct.

“That is why today, I cast my vote to impeach President Trump.

“This is a profound moment in our nation’s history. It is not just our responsibility, but our somber obligation to protect our republic and uphold the very tenets it was founded upon. The future of our country hinges on decisions like the one we made today—and I’ll always stand up to defend the Constitution of the United States, preserve our democracy, and ensure no one is above justice.”
