On Friday, the House Judiciary Committee passed two allegations:

1. Abuse of Power

2. Obstruction of Congress

Congressman Antonio Delgado shared his stance publicly on Sunday saying:

“The President pressured a foreign government for personal political gain while withholding congressionally approved foreign aid, and in doing so, both abused his power and put our national security at risk. The President also obstructed Congress by blanketly refusing to cooperate with the body’s constitutional right to investigate the matter. ‘There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.’ These are the words of my hero, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Having reviewed the articles of impeachment and the underlying evidence, my conscience tells me that the right thing to do is abide by my oath of office and vote affirmatively for both articles.”

A vote is expected to happen on Wednesday.
