I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy. Yesterday, I voted to impeach President Trump. After he circulated lies for months about the election being invalid, he continued to stir up anger and encourage his supporters to march to the U.S. Capitol and to use violence to overturn the results of the election on the day that Congress counted the electoral votes. As a result, lives were lost and chaos ensued that was a threat to the beating heart of our country: our democracy.
I voted for impeachment to safeguard our nation from any future shame or damage that Trump could inflict during his remaining time in office.
I heard the concerns of many of you who called for accountability after the attempted insurrection and I carried each of your voices with me as I voted in support of impeachment. As we acted to protect our country, I pledge to keep working towards the challenges ahead for Wisconsin’s Fourth by tackling the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting an equitable and strong economic recovery, and working towards healing our divided country by championing the truth and pursuing accountability.
