Resolution Censuring Representative Bill Pascrell

Whereas on November 20, 2020, Representative Bill Pascrell sent a letter to the State Bar of Arizona, the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission, the Office of the Bar Counsel of Nevada, the State of New York Grievance Committee, and the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, to file a complaint against attorneys in each jurisdiction representing the campaign of President Donald J. Trump.

Whereas Representative Bill Pascrell’s letters accuse the attorneys of filing “frivolous lawsuits” and requests each state agency “to commence an immediate investigation of their actions and consider sanctions for their conduct up to and including revocation of their licenses to practice law in your jurisdiction.”

Whereas President Donald J. Trump’s campaign has a legal right to sue to ensure that each legal vote is counted and to challenge any illegal votes.

Whereas each candidate running for public office in each state has the right to pursue every legal option to ensure ballot integrity and fair elections.

Resolved, That –

  1. The House of Representatives censures Representative Bill Pascrell for conduct that threatens the livelihoods of American citizens in a way that is not befitting an elected Member of the House of Representatives;
  2. Representative Bill Pascrell will forthwith present himself in the well of the House for the pronouncement of censure; and
  3. Representative Bill Pascrell will be censured with the public reading of this resolution by the Speaker.
