Texas Democratic Party Applauds Texas Congresswoman Veronica Escobar and Congressmen Vicente Gonzalez, Al Green, and Lloyd Doggett for Joining Resolutions to Impeach Donald Trump

For Inciting Violence and Undermining our Institutions, Trump Must be Removed from Office

Austin, Texas — Today, the Texas Democratic Party applauded Texas Congresswoman Veronica Escobar and Congressmen Vicente Gonzalez, Lloyd Doggett, and Al Green for signing resolutions to impeach Donald Trump.

Additionally, the Texas Democratic Party applauds Texas Congresspeople Sheila Jackson Lee, Joaquín Castro, Marc Veasey, and Sylvia Garcia for calling for Trump’s removal via the 25th Amendment.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“From inciting the violence we saw yesterday to undermining our most basic democratic institutions, Donald Trump has proven time and time again that he is a threat to all of our prosperity and safety. He must be removed from office immediately.

“The Texas Democratic Party applauds Texas Democrats leading this charge, including Texas Congresswoman Veronica Escobar, and Congressmen Vicente Gonzalez, Lloyd Doggett, and Al Green. This is bigger than politics, this is about our entire democracy, our union, and the direction of our country. No president is bigger than our democracy. Donald Trump is an imminent danger to our country; he must be held accountable through either impeachment or removal via the 25th Amendment.

“The Texas Democratic Party urges every patriot to join these efforts and put our democracy over their allegiance to Trump.”
