A Message From Congressman Sarbanes




Holding Trump accountable and winning the 2020 election

On the investigation front, we will press ahead with the impeachment inquiry using the oversight authority of our committees of jurisdiction. I’m proud to serve as a member of the Committee on Oversight and Reform.  

On the litigation front, Democrats will go to court as necessary to uncover any and all information regarding Trump’s misconduct, including his financial dealings before entering office.  The public’s demand for checks and balances means activating the full measure of Congress’ Article 1 power and enlisting the Article III Judiciary Branch to enforce the will of the people.  No one is above the law.

On the legislation front, we will continue the substantive policy work of Congress. I was proud to author HR1, the For the People Act, the most far-reaching democracy reform bill in a generation, which passed in March 2019 and set the table for other key measures Democrats have passed in this Congress to protect our election systems, ensure equal pay for equal work, raise the minimum wage, reduce the cost of prescription drugs, demand more humanitarian treatment at the border, close gun background check loopholes and much, much more.  These proposals are piled up at the Senate door where Mitch McConnell refuses to take action.

In November of 2020, Democrat’s strategy of investigate, litigate and legislate will prevail.  We will beat Trump, fix our democracy and rebuild America.
