Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb issued the following statement Wednesday after the U.S. House voted to adopt two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — stemming from charges that he corrupted the U.S. election process and endangered national security.
“I applaud the brave members of the House who voted to stand up to this criminal bully of a president,” Kleeb said. “Unfortunately, Nebraska’s GOP members of Congress — Reps. Don Bacon, Jeff Fortenberry and Adrian Smith — showed they were cowards by voting against the measure. They have put their party ahead of our country and Constitution.
“The survival of our democracy is at stake.Trump is a threat to our democracy and national security. Those who voted for the articles of impeachment are giving our nation a path to restoring the rule of law and defending our Constitution.”
