I do not take this vote lightly, just as I do not take my responsibilities as a member of Congress and as a representative of the people of North Carolina’s 2nd District lightly. It was a moral imperative that we vote to impeach President

As the supply allows, citizens will be contacted to schedule an appointment. On January 19th, the tool will be accessible on their website and through a special phone line.
