Hold Trump accountable and sustain democracy

The impeachment inquiry in the House has established that President Donald Trump’s actions have been ethically wrong and illegal. We know the facts — the president has asked Ukraine to interfere in American elections, blocked military aid to a U.S. ally to exert leverage for his personal benefit and obstructed Congress to cover it up. Trump respects neither his oath of office nor our laws.

Will congressional Republicans hold him accountable? Sens. Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley have also taken an oath to uphold the Constitution. It’s time for them to hold Trump accountable and sustain our democracy.
