Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Today, justice was served when Donald Trump was finally impeached. The evidence was overwhelming and irrefutable. Trump betrayed our democracy, our national security, and our entire country. No party, no president, no member of Congress is above the law. Trump was finally held accountable for his actions.
“Now, John Cornyn and the United States Senate must review the evidence and act according to the Constitution. Partisanship must be pushed aside and our elected officials must put the rule of law above all else.
“If Republican Senators, like John Cornyn, refuse to do their jobs, we must be ready to vote them out of office and elect people who will. Anything less would be an affront to our Constitution and a disservice to the millions of patriots who fought and bled to defend our democracy.”
