Elaine Luria - Oath
As a Congresswoman and former Navy Commander, I swore an oath to support and defend our Constitution five times. Donald Trump didn’t uphold his oath, but I intend to uphold mine. https://secure.elaineforcongress.com/oath
Voiceover, Dialog, Spoken Text, Script, or Lyrics
I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign, and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
I took that oath the first time when I was 17 years old when I went to the Naval Academy. I took it again upon every promotion during my Navy career, and most recently now serving in Congress representing my district.
It is making people sit up and take notice tonight that Elaine Luria has now joined six of her fellow freshmen Democrats to call those actions quote an impeachable offense.
God help me.
Devastating news today for the Trump administration
Critical new evidence tying President Trump to possible abuse of power.
So I am about to enter the office on which the duties of discharge I will well and faithfully take.
They should investigate the Bidens.
The president pushed eight times for an investigation into Joe Biden.
You did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden.
Of course I did.
...this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion. And that, that I bear is very clearly an impeachable office to me. That the president enlisted the help of a foreign leader to conduct an investigation to malign his political opponent. True faith and allegiance to the same enemies, foreign, but I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all. I didn't come to Washington to impeach the president, but also didn't spend 20 years in the Navy to allow our Constitution to be trampled on. I will swear solemnly. And people might say, well why would you do that? You might not get re-elected. I don't care because I did the right thing. I do.
