Bera Statement on Articles of Impeachment

Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Ami Bera, M.D. (CA-07) today released the following statement on articles of impeachment:

“After careful consideration and review of the facts, I have decided to vote yes on both articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The President has abused the power of his office by withholding congressionally-approved military aid to Ukraine for his personal and political gain. The President then went to great lengths to obstruct Congress in its oversight of his actions.

While I did not come to Congress to impeach any president, I will uphold my constitutional duty to protect and defend the constitution of the United States.”
