On Wednesday, following the second impeachment of President Donald Trump, U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, who represents Homewood and Flossmoor, issued the following statement.
"The President’s actions amount to treason. Donald Trump will go down in history as the only president in history to be impeached twice.
"He has brought eternal shame upon himself and disgraced the office of the presidency.
"He incited a deadly insurrection against the American government to stop the peaceful transfer of power.
"Today, truth has triumphed over the blatant lies of this president and his enablers who sought to delegitimize a free and fair election.
"I am proud to have voted to expel this president from office. He is a clear and present danger to our nation. Only impeachment and conviction will stop him from inflicting further damage to our democracy."
