WASHINGTON, D.C.— Following today’s House vote to formalize the protocol for the Trump impeachment process going forward, People For the American Way President Michael Keegan released the following statement:

“This is our democracy at work. Today’s vote prepares the way for every member of this Congress to ultimately go on record as to whether it is acceptable for an American president to seek help from a foreign government to help him win an election. Members will now face a choice: to take a stand upholding the integrity of our elections against abuses of presidential power, or enter history as apologists for this president’s unconscionable behavior.”
