Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tonight appointed Congressman Eric Swalwell (CA-15) an Impeachment Manager for the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Swalwell released the following statement:

“America is under an attack incited by President Donald Trump. Lives have been lost and future plans are in place to stop a transition of power. A president's greatest responsibility is to protect American lives and defend American ideals. Donald Trump has failed to do both. For the safety of all Americans and the continuity of our experiment in self-governance, Donald Trump must be removed from office.

“Tomorrow, I will join a bipartisan group of my colleagues in voting to impeach Donald Trump for inciting a deadly attack on the Capitol. It is a solemn privilege to be named an Impeachment Manager. I vow to work collaboratively with the Impeachment Managers team to make a case to the Senate for conviction and removal."
