WASHINGTON, D.C. – Missouri Congresswoman Cori Bush delivered her speech on the House of Representatives Floor in support of H. Res. 24 to impeach President Donald Trump.

In her speech she said:

” Madam Speaker —

St. Louis and I rise in support of the article of impeachment against Donald J. Trump.

If we fail to remove a white supremacist President who incited a white supremacist insurrection, it’s communities like Missouri’s First District that suffer the most.

The 117th Congress must understand that we have a mandate to legislate in defense of Black lives.

The first step in that process is to root out white supremacy, starting with impeaching the white supremacist-in-chief.

Thank you and I yield back.”
