Montgomery County Council Releases Statement Supporting the U.S. House of Representatives’ Resolution to Impeach President Trump

The Montgomery County Council released a statement today supporting the United States House of Representatives’ resolution to impeach President Trump.

“Rockville, Md., Jan. 12, 2021—Today, the Montgomery County Council issued the following statement supporting the U.S. House of Representatives’ resolution to impeach President Donald Trump:

“The Montgomery County Council fully supports the U.S. House of Representatives’ resolution to impeach President Donald Trump which charges him with inciting an insurrection and endangering our democracy and our nation.

“Instead of preserving, protecting, and defending the U.S. Constitution, President Trump and his surrogates fomented political unrest in an attempt to overturn a fair and free election. Every day he remains in office, he poses a threat to the health and welfare of the American people, puts the security of our country at risk, and damages our nation’s standing in the world.

“We are extremely proud of and grateful to our congressional leaders who honored their commitments to the American people by certifying the victory of President-elect Joseph Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris in the midst of chaos. Now it’s time for Vice President Michael Pence to facilitate a peaceful transition of power.

“In addition, we are thankful for our law enforcement and fire and rescue personnel who answered the call to restore the orderly and peaceful operations of government at the U.S. Capitol. We also send our condolences to the families who are mourning the loss of their loved ones because of the insurrection. During this time of political unrest, we will continue to do all we can to support the safety of our residents, our congressional leaders, and our neighbors in Washington, D.C.

“We know that brighter days lie ahead. The light of democracy cannot be extinguished by an angry mob or the rhetoric of a spiteful, irrational leader, especially when most Americans hold firm to the principles of fairness, justice, and the rule of law. We look forward to beginning a new chapter in our nation’s history focused on healing, renewal, and the common good.”
