Norcross Votes in Favor of Both Articles of Impeachment

Dec 19, 2019
News Release

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) today voted in favor of both articles – Article I: Abuse of Power and Article II: Obstruction of Congress – of impeachment against President Trump.

“Today’s events are a solemn reminder of our duty as Americans to protect the great democracy that our founders built.

“This past weekend, I traveled with a bipartisan delegation to Belgium and Luxembourg for the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, where 19,000 Americans gave their lives. Today, we were called to preserve the democracy that they so bravely defended. 

“I believe there is overwhelming evidence, well beyond a reasonable doubt, that President Trump is guilty of both articles of impeachment – Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress. Therefore, I upheld my oath to defend the Constitution and voted in favor of impeachment.

“It is our responsibility to honor all those who have fought to uphold this fundamental truth: In America, no one is above the law.”
