Bustos Statement on Articles of Impeachment

Washington – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) released the following statement announcing her position on articles of impeachment:

"With both a profound sense of constitutional duty and deep respect for the Office of the Presidency, I will solemnly cast my vote in favor of both articles of impeachment for Senate consideration. No one is above the law, and there is beyond ample evidence that President Trump abused the tremendous powers of the presidency to jeopardize our national security and that of our allies.


As I cast this difficult vote – and as I have demonstrated since first being elected – my priorities are with the people of the Illinois 17th Congressional District. I remain committed to working with anyone from any party to continue to deliver for our region, state and country. In the last weeks, we have passed historic victories for Illinoisans, including legislation that will lower the costs of prescription drugs for struggling families and seniors. We have worked with both parties to pass year-end spending bills that will help our veterans and servicemembers, improve rural health care, and strengthen our workforce. Finally, we have worked together with Republicans and the Administration to secure a new trade framework between the United States, Mexico and Canada, which provides stronger labor enforcement for our workers and renewed certainty for our family farmers."
