WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Jared Golden has announced how he plans to vote on the articles of impeachment.
The democratic representative said he will vote in favor of Article I, charging President Trump with abuse of power.
However, Golden said he will vote against Article II, which charges the president with obstruction of congress.
In a statement released late Tuesday afternoon, Golden said he’s dismayed by the circumstances surrounding “the inquiry, likely impeachment, and coming to trial of the president.”
He also said that the president’s efforts to solicit foreign involvement in the upcoming election is a “threat to our democracy that cannot go unchecked.”

A vote is scheduled to take place Wednesday in the U.S. House of Representatives.
