WASHINGTONCongressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus, spoke on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in support of impeaching the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. A transcript of his remarks, as delivered, are below:

“Thank you, Madame Speaker.

“One week ago, the President of the United States incited a deadly attack on the United States Capitol while a couple dozen members of this House and I covered ourselves in this gallery away from the Trump mob. Five people are dead, including a Capitol Police officer.

“If inciting an insurrection does not warrant impeachment, nothing does. I took an oath to uphold the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

“Today, I vote to uphold my oath.”
