Thank you for contacting me about the impeachment of President Trump. I appreciate the time and effort you took to share your perspective with me on this important issue, and welcome the opportunity to respond.
House Democrats gave us the first purely partisan impeachment in our history and the first attempt to remove an elected president without even alleging unlawful conduct. It’s clear that the political class in Washington cannot accept the verdict of the people in 2016, and so they sought to overturn an election and entrench themselves in power. That’s what this was really about and that is why I voted to acquit President Trump.
It’s been clear for a long time that impeachment is not a priority of the people, but the pipe dream of politicians. When House Democrats forced impeachment on this country, it diverted our attention from critical issues such as the crisis of suicide, rising health care and housing costs, and the lack of internet access in rural areas.
It’s time we left this impeachment circus behind and looked to the future. I am ready to get back to work and focus on the issues that matter to you and your family.
As always, I truly appreciate hearing your concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future on other issues important to you and your community. It is a privilege to be your voice in Congress.
