WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a Senate floor speech today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin announced her position on the Articles of Impeachment and that she will vote to convict President Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
“My vote on the president’s abuse of power and obstruction of Congress is a vote to uphold my oath of office, and to support and defend the Constitution. My vote is a vote to uphold the rule of law and our uniquely American principle that no one, not even the president, is above the law,” Senator Baldwin said. “I only have one of 100 votes in the U.S. Senate and I am afraid that the majority is putting this president above the law by not convicting him of these impeachable offenses. But let’s be clear, this is not an exoneration of President Trump, it is a failure to show moral courage and hold this president accountable.”
