DPCC Co-Chair Neguse Appeared on MSNBC Saying It’s Congress’ Duty to Ensure Justice is Served on Behalf of the American People


(Washington, DC) Congressman Joe Neguse, Co-Chair of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC), appeared on The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart on MSNBC Sunday to explain the responsibility of Congress to hold the President accountable for threatening our democracy.


“I think the House spoke loudly here that this President’s removal was of an urgent concern, an urgent priority - that his service in office represented ultimately a danger to our republic, and he has no interest in ensuring the peaceful transfer of power, he’s made that clear,” said Neguse. “Ultimately pursuing this process to remove is incredibly important. But I would also say to your larger point, Jonathan, it’s important for the Congress to hold this President accountable. We cannot be, as a Constitutional Republic, a country where the President of the United States can incite an armed insurrection and face no consequences. For deterrent purposes we must make sure, not just simply this President but any future President does not engage in this type of heinous conduct. I think it’s important for this constitutional process, which is a solemn one, to ultimately be completed in the United States Senate. For the trial to take place, and for the Senators to ultimately reach their conclusion.”
