2021 Scorecard Vote
Representative David Cicilline (D-RI) introduced H. Res. 24, impeaching President Donald Trump for incitement of insurrection. Trump encouraged and incited the deadly mob on January 6, and he perpetuated the unfounded and harmful claims about the 2020 election that inspired their actions. The riot caused multiple deaths and directly threatened our democratic process, and the president responded with inaction, followed by further defense of the violent behavior. Holding elected officials accountable and ensuring our elections remain free and fair are essential for the preservation of our democracy. On January 13, the House voted to impeach by a vote of 232-197 (House roll call vote 17). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate failed to convict the former president.
