Rep. Dan Newhouse Becomes Sixth House Republican to Back Trump Impeachment


Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) on Wednesday became the sixth House Republican member to express support for impeaching President Donald Trump over last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol.  

“A vote against this impeachment is a vote to validate the unacceptable violence we witnessed in our nation’s capital,” Newhouse said in a statement. “It is also a vote to condone President Trump’s inaction. He did not strongly condemn the attack nor did he call in reinforcements when our officers were overwhelmed. Our country needs a leader, and President Trump failed to fulfill his oath of office. I will vote yes on the articles of impeachment.”
