FLORIDA LGBTQ+ DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS RENEWS ITS CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP

DELRAY BEACH FL – In May, the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus called on the U.S. House to begin impeachment proceedings to hold President Trump accountable for the findings of Independent Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Over the past week, we have learned that President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine and repeatedly pressured their President to conduct a sham investigation that would benefit Trump politically. Stephen Gaskill, president of the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, issued the following statement calling on Florida’s Congressional Delegation to support impeachment proceedings now:

“President Trump’s conduct around Ukraine is a textbook example of a corrupt abuse of power – soliciting assistance from a foreign government to win an election, all the while jeopardizing our national security in the process. For good reason, the U.S. Constitution specifically calls out treason and bribery as impeachable offenses. There is only one path forward and that is holding the President accountable with immediate impeachment proceedings. Every member of Florida’s Congressional Delegation should live up to their constitutional duties and join the call for impeachment.”
