Rep. Capuano Statement on Impeachment Vote

December 6, 2017

ďAs a lawyer I have approached impeachment deliberately and thoughtfully. Taking steps to impeach a President is a gravely serious matter. Practically and politically, I think most of us can agree that passing articles of impeachment in this House isnít realistic at this moment in our history. But sometimes, itís more important to follow your heart than do the practical or political calculation. Today, I followed my heart and cast a vote to begin a debate on whether this President has committed impeachable acts. Itís time to have an open, honest debate on President Trump and his fitness for office."
