Press Releases

Washington, D.C. -- Congresswoman Terri Sewell welcomed news that the House Judiciary Committee is one step closer to holding judicial impeachment proceedings for U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller of Alabama.

“In November, I requested that the Judiciary Committee initiate an impeachment investigation and hearing into Judge Mark Fuller’s arrest. Only Congress can impeach a federal judge, and I have repeatedly pressed for my colleagues on the Judiciary Committee to take the steps necessary to remove Judge Fuller from the bench.

“I am pleased that the House Judiciary Committee has requested additional funding in anticipation of potential judicial impeachment proceedings. I hoped that Judge Fuller would have spared himself, his family, and our nation the expense of this lengthy process by immediately resigning but he has resisted my repeated calls to step down.

“I will continue to work with my colleagues to uphold the integrity of the Court and to initiate impeachment proceedings.”
