Jan 13, 2021
News Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) today issued the following statement:

“Following the shameful and deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol – the physical embodiment of our democracy – I have upheld my oath to protect and defend the Constitution by voting in favor of the impeachment of President Trump.

“On January 6, 2021, the President of the United States incited an insurrection to deter Members of Congress from finishing our work to certify the outcome of the presidential election and ensure the peaceful transfer of power. Five people died, including a law enforcement officer who gave his life defending our lives and our democracy.

“The President is a clear and present danger to our democracy and to the American people, and whether he has 4 years or 4 days left in office, he will be held accountable.”

Norcross spoke on the House Floor before the vote. The video can be viewed here.
