Representative Antonio Delgado, of the 19th district of New York State, called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump recently.

On Tuesday, September 24, 2019, Rep. Delgado formally called for the impeachment of President Trump in a statement. The statement reads:

“The first responsibility of the President of the United States is to keep our country safe, but it has become clear that our president has placed his personal interests above the national security of our nation.  The President has admitted to soliciting the Ukrainian president to investigate a political rival.  In doing so, the President used the power of the presidency to pressure a foreign government to help him win an election.  This, by itself, is an impeachable offense.  And yet, even more troubling is the fact that prior to this conversation, the President instructed his administration to withhold military aid that Ukraine needed to fend off Russian aggression.  Having taken an oath of office before God and my fellow citizens to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, I can only conclude that Congress move forward with articles of impeachment.”

President Trump is set to run for reelection in 2020. The Democrat nomination for presidential candidate has yet to be chosen.
