NHDP Statement on House Vote to Impeach President Trump

Concord, N.H. -- Today, the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump after he incited the violent mob at the United States Capitol last week. In response, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement: “President Trump incited last week’s attacks on the Capitol and continues to propagate dangerous lies aimed at undermining the bedrock of our democracy. “Today, a bipartisan majority in Congress voted to hold the President accountable and send a strong message in defense of our Constitution. While it is heartening that these Republicans put country before party, there are still too many politicians who remain complicit as Trump and members of the GOP threaten our democracy. “While former GOP lawmakers like Senator Gordon Humphrey and Congressman Charlie Bass have called for Trump’s removal, New Hampshire Republican politicians including Chris Sununu, Kelly Ayotte, Chuck Morse, Sherman Packard, and Matt Mowers refuse to put country before party and call for Trump to be held accountable. “Their complicity is shameful, and Granite Staters deserve better than politicians like Chris Sununu who cares more about climbing the ladder in his political career than standing up for our country and our democracy.”
