Rep. Peter Meijer censure resolution fails to pass

Feb 9, 2021

After voting to impeach President Donald Trump, an attempt to censure United States Representative Peter Meijer failed this week. Meijer, who represents Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, had come under heavy criticism from Republican leaders for breaking away from party lines and voting for impeachment--and many wanted to punish Meijer with a censure resolution, which would strip him of any committee chairs he holds in Congress.

U.S. Rep. Peter Meijer (R-Grand Rapids, MI-3) has issued this statement on Impeachment: 

We saw profiles in courage during the assault on the Capitol. Police officers, badly outnumbered, putting their lives on the line to save others. Members of Congress barricading doors and caring for colleagues. A Vice President who fearlessly remained in the Capitol and refused to bow to the mob.
