Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price released the following statement following the U.S. House vote to impeach President Trump:
“Today one party fulfilled its duty to uphold our constitution and the values of our democracy. The evidence that Trump committed multiple impeachable offenses is overwhelming and his actions have given Congress no choice but to hold the president accountable. No one is above the law, and this vote was necessary to preserve our democracy for future generations and protect our national security.
“Representatives Axne, Finkenauer and Loebsack are fighting day in and day out to expand access to health care, raise wages, and uphold the rule of law. Just this week, all three of our Democratic Representatives ushered through legislation that will bring relief and resources to farmers struggling from the ongoing effects of Trump’s trade and renewable fuels policies. I’m proud of our House Democrats for standing up for our country today and every day.”
