Sinema Statement on Conclusion of Senate Trial

Feb 13, 2021

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema today released the following statement:
“Our greatest loyalty as Americans is to our Constitution and the freedoms and protections she provides us; elected officials swear a solemn oath to uphold and defend our Constitution. Former President Donald Trump betrayed his oath willfully, as no president has before. He incited a violent insurrection against his own government because he did not like the outcome of a free and fair election. What is at stake today is the future of our democracy and whether we will be a country that fiercely protects democracy, or let it slip away to claims of party loyalty. May we all be loyal to our Constitution, rather than a political party or a person – because we must rebuild Americans’ faith in our democracy and our trust in each other. America must remain the shining light and model for democracy and peaceful transitions of power, where the people’s voice is the law of the land. It’s up to all of us to stand together united in our resolve to build a more perfect union.”
