Today, I voted to convict President Trump on two articles of impeachment.




Today, I voted to convict President Trump on two articles of impeachment. It gives me no pleasure to conclude that he is guilty of the offenses laid out in the trial.

Sadly, we have a president who sees himself as above the law and is ignorant or indifferent to the Constitution.

There were two questions for me to answer as a juror in the impeachment trial: whether President Trump is guilty of abusing his power as president for his own political gain, and whether he obstructed Congress in their investigation of him.

The evidence of Trump’s guilt is so overwhelming that the Republican Party, for the first time in the history of presidential impeachment, obstructed testimony from witnesses—even willing witnesses.

My greater concern is if Republicans acquit President Trump by undercutting the very rule of law. That will truly be remembered as a sad and dangerous moment in the history of our country.
