Good evening everyone. It is my honor to be here with members of the House leadership; leader Hoyer, Whip Clyburn, Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark. Also with our managers for the impeachment, our lead manager Jamie Raskin, Diana Degette, David Cicilline, Joaquin Castro, Eric Swalwell, Madeleine Dean, and Joe Neguse. I think Ted Lieu and Stacey Plaskett are in here electronically one way or another but we're very proud that they have accepted the responsibility, a responsibility we do not think one week ago we would have. Today in a bipartisan way the House demonstrated that no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States. That Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country and that once again we honored our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States so help us God. And now, I sadly and with a heart broken over what this means to our country — a President who would incite insurrection — will sign the engrossment of the article of impeachment.
