Press Release

On Tuesday, December 17, 2019, Dr. Ruiz released the following statement regarding the House vote to impeach President Donald Trump. 

"It is with great solemnity and reverence for the Constitution that I have decided to vote to impeach President Donald Trump," said Dr. Ruiz (CA-36). "By conditioning millions in military aid to a foreign ally on an investigation into his political rival, Donald Trump abused the power of the presidency for personal political gain. He then obstructed Congress in its constitutionally mandated oversight role. In doing so, President Trump violated our Constitution, compromised our national security, and undermined the integrity of our democratic process."
