McHenry Votes Against Articles of Impeachment
Washington, December 18, 2019
Today, Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on his vote against H. Res. 755, Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors:
“Over the past year, we’ve seen our Democratic colleagues put partisanship over the American people as they’ve focused on undoing the results of the 2016 election and removing President Trump from office. We had our first impeachment vote just five months after he was sworn in as our President. Since then we’ve had seven more votes on impeachment and seen this Congress produce more subpoenas than bills signed in to law. The articles of impeachment Democrats forced through the House this evening are based on the thinnest record in modern history. They are the result of a rushed process, jammed through a mere eleven months before the next election.
“We could be ending the year celebrating passage of bipartisan accomplishments like USMCA or NDAA. Instead, we are taking the most divisive vote this body has seen in years. This is indeed a sad day for the House.”
