CASE VOTES TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT

He says President’s incitement of January 6th’s violent assault on the U.S. Capitol violated his oath to defend the Constitution and cannot go unanswered

News Release from Office of Rep Ed Case, January 13, 2021

(Honolulu, HI) – U.S. Congressman Ed Case (HI-01) today voted with a bipartisan majority of the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Trump for inciting violence against the United States government.

The single count of impeachment, approved by the House on a vote of 232- 197, charged that President Trump incited the January 6th violent attack on the United States Capitol for the purpose of interfering with the U.S. Congress’ constitutional duty to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election. It concluded that:

“In all this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and the institutions of Government. He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of power. He therefore betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”

“I carefully reviewed the resolution of impeachment, evidence, historical precedents, debate in the House, and the view of my constituents,” said Case. “I concluded that the charges in the resolution were correct and that the extreme remedy of impeachment of the President was necessary and appropriate.

“I further concluded that for me to vote otherwise under these circumstances would be in dereliction of my own oath to defend our Constitution, would approve intolerable conduct by our President, and would set a deeply damaging and unacceptable precedent for future Congresses and Presidents.

“This is a deeply troubling and sad day and week for me. I take no pleasure in casting my second vote for impeachment of this President, but there was no other choice consistent with my duty. I can only recommit with all of my fellow citizens to finding our way through this dark chapter to a better way forward for our country.”

The resolution of impeachment is now referred to the U.S. Senate, which must determine whether to convict or acquit the President of the specific charge of incitement.

The vote to impeach follows passage last night of House Resolution 21, a measure Case also voted for that called on Vice President Michael Pence to invoke Section 4 of the 25th amendment to “declare President Donald J. Trump incapable of executing the duties of his office and to immediately exercise powers as acting President.” The Vice President informed U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a letter that he would not abide by that House resolution.

This is the second time the U.S. House has voted to impeach Trump, a first in U.S. history.

In December 2019, Case voted with a majority of House members to approve two articles of impeachment charging the President with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for his specific actions involving Ukraine. The Senate subsequently acquitted the President on both articles.
