WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) released this statement upon the impeachment today of President Donald John Trump:

“Today is a somber day for our country. In America, no one is above the law, and the American people deserve to hear evidence and witness testimony during a full and fair trial in the Senate. If the President has any facts to present in his defense to the articles of impeachment, we should hear them. When the Senate convenes for a trial, I will take my oath seriously and carry out my constitutional duty.”
