Moulton Statement on the Motion to Table the Resolution to Impeach President TrumpWashington, D.C. — Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (MA-6) voted against the Motion to Table H.Res. 646, which calls for the initiation of impeachment proceedings for President Trump. Following the vote, Congressman Moulton released this statement:
"I voted against tabling the impeachment resolution because I believe the charges are legitimate and deserve a hearing. The timing of this resolution is poor; the legal argument could be stronger; and politically, advancing this now is inopportune. But when we vote, we should first and foremost consider the substance of the legislation, and here I agree with it."
