NCDP Statement on Bipartisan Vote To Impeach The President

North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after today’s bipartisan vote to impeachment the president: 

“Today’s bipartisan vote sends a strong message to the American people — no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States. North Carolina Democrats are proud to stand with our Democratic delegation who, with their vote today, took the necessary action to hold the president accountable for inciting a violent insurrection and deadly attack at the Capitol and fulfilled their oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic — including the president. Despite others in their party showing courage and conviction, every North Carolina House Republican – Representatives Madison Cawthorn, David Rouzer, Greg Murphy, Ted Budd, Dan Bishop, Richard Hudson, and Virginia Foxx – pledged their allegiance not with our country but with a dangerous president who incited a violent insurrection against our government. If Senators Tillis and Burr refuse to act to hold this president accountable, they will join the cowardly ranks of their colleagues in betraying our country for their own partisan gain.”
