Casey: President Trump should be impeached; Members of Congress who led effort to overthrow a democratic election must be held accountable

Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) called for the impeachment of President Trump and accountability for those members of Congress who led the effort to overthrow a democratic election.

“There can be no justice without accountability for those involved in the insurrection against the federal government. As a Nation, we cannot advance our shared democratic values without consequences for those who have betrayed those values. Those who stormed the Capitol should face charges. President Trump should be impeached and removed from office because he betrayed his oath to the Constitution and incited a mob to violence. There should also be accountability for those members of Congress who led the effort to overthrow a democratic election. If they refuse to resign their office, then Congress should begin to explore censure or expulsion. Failing to hold those responsible for the insurrection accountable would be a profound injustice and give a green light to future authoritarians.”
