WASHINGTON, D.C. — This evening, the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump.
In response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:
“This is a solemn moment in America’s history, but the impeachment of Donald Trump was a necessary action to protect free and fair elections, checks and balances, and the Constitution. The Sierra Club continues its full support of the House of Representatives in their impeachment of the president.
“Should Trump’s rampant corruption remain unchecked, the consequences would be enormous. The bedrock of our democracy is at stake, as is clean air, clean water, and a safe climate. If we are to protect the environment and fight for a livable planet, we must have a strong democracy.
“The Senate must now fulfill their oath to the Constitution and do their jobs of protecting the sanctity of our democracy and remove this corrupt President from office.”
