Whitehouse Statement on Trump Impeachment

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released the following statement on House adoption of articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump:

“The House has gathered a wealth of undisputed facts to support its articles of impeachment.  Now, it is the constitutional duty of the Senate to consider these articles and the underlying evidence with all the seriousness and care the Founders intended.  That means a process where the relevant evidence is aired, necessary witnesses are called forward, and cases by both sides are fully made.  I hope all of my colleagues heed the oath they will take at the beginning of the Senate trial to ‘do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws.’”
