OPCMIA Applauds House Impeachment Vote

On behalf of the OPCMIA’s 56,000 members, I applaud the House’s courageous bipartisan vote today to impeach President Donald Trump. President Trump incited an armed insurrection on January 6th, an attempt to violently overturn the legitimate results of a free and fair election to keep himself in power in direct violation of his oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
