Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, IL – Today, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement in response to the first day of former President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate:

“Watching the former President’s impeachment trial before the Senate, I couldn’t help but reflect on the extremely disturbing events of January 6th. When violent insurgents stormed the Capitol, I was forced to flee my own office with my staff after a bomb was discovered only two hundred feet from my office window. The President incited the crowd that attacked our Capitol and our democratic institutions last month and the necessity of his conviction is as clear today as it was the day he caused United States Representatives, Senators, and their staff to flee for their lives and pray for their safety.”
