Elizabeth Warren, Senator from Massachusetts
Donald Trump has abused our diplomatic relationships and undermined our national security for his own personal, political gain. By voting to impeach him, the House has taken an important step to hold him accountable. I’m ready to fulfill my constitutional duty in the Senate.

Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont
The House of Representatives rightly carried out its constitutional responsibility by voting to impeach Donald Trump, the most corrupt president in our history. No one, including the president, is above the law.

Joseph R. Biden Jr., Former vice president
President Trump abused his power, violated his oath of office, and betrayed our nation. This is a solemn moment for our country. But in the United States of America, no one is above the law — not even the President.

If the media spent a fraction of the time they are spending on impeachment on the economic dislocations that got Trump elected we would be a stronger country for it.

Cory Booker, Senator from New Jersey
As this process heads to the Senate for trial, I’ll uphold my sacred oath to protect & defend the Constitution.
This trial demands an impartial & thorough review of the evidence. We must be presented with relevant witnesses & documents, and follow the evidence where it leads.
— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) December 19, 2019
Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend, Ind.
But this is not just about this moment or this president. It’s about our democracy itself.
It’s about the era to come after this president leaves office. More than ever, we need leadership to pick up the pieces and move our nation forward.

Julian Castro, Former housing secretary
Today Congress must put patriotism over politics, hold this president accountable for his actions, and send a message that no one is above the law.
The evidence is clear.
Donald Trump violated his oath of office and abused his power. Impeach him.

John Delaney, Former congressman from Maryland
I’m proud of the Democrats in the House of Representatives for holding the President accountable for actions that are against our national interest and for his betrayal of the public trust and I pray for our nation, that we find the strength to heal our deep divisions.

A house divided cannot stand. And today we are divided. Fragmentation and polarity are ripping our country apart.

The House has made a grave and difficult vote, but it is the necessary decision for our country. President Trump‘s reckless actions have proven ill-intended. He will be held accountable for jeopardizing the wellbeing of our democracy. https://t.co/s7aOTbvqYw

The Founding Fathers included impeachment provisions in the Constitution because they feared that a President could betray the trust of the American people to a foreign power.

No one is above the law.
