Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on Voting to Impeach President Donald Trump

January 13, 2021
Press Release

Washington, DC – After The United States House of Representatives received confirmation from Vice President Mike Pence that he would not invoke the 25th Amendment, the House voted today to hold President Trump accountable for inciting an insurrection against the United States. Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH-13) who joined with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to vote to impeach the President, released the following statement:

“There is no place in our democracy for a president who incites violence to overturn the result of a free and fair election. After Vice President Pence failed to act, the House was left with no choice but to impeach this dangerous and unfit president. I stood today with lawmakers from many different states and political backgrounds, and we said in no uncertain terms: democracy will not be intimidated. President Trump’s dangerous behavior will remain a stain on our nation’s history, but we will carry forward and ensure there is a peaceful transition of power on January 20th.”
