OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR MOLLY GRAY ON U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IMPEACHMENT VOTE
Montpelier, Vt. — Lieutenant Governor Gray today issued the following statement:
“Like all Vermonters, I was profoundly disturbed by the fatal insurrection last week in the U.S. Capitol building instigated, fueled and directed by President Trump.
I applaud Vermont’s Congressional delegation for their leadership, particularly Representative Peter Welch who co-sponsored today’s impeachment resolution.
Today’s vote is imperative to the integrity of our Constitution and the preservation of our democracy.
The impeachment of President Trump is a vital step to ensuring the safety and security of all Americans. Actions have consequences. As a nation, we must demand accountability, justice, and truth. No elected official is above the Constitution.”
