HYDE-SMITH STATEMENT ON HOUSE VOTES TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) issued the following statement after House Democrats voted to approve two articles of impeachment against President Trump:
“These votes have been a long time coming. Democrats have wanted impeachment since the day President Trump won the election in 2016. I’ve followed the House Democrats’ partisan hearings, and I haven’t heard or read anything regarding the charges against the President that rise to the level of impeachable offenses.
“Any attempt to remove a sitting President is a very serious matter. We don’t know the framework for a Senate trial, but I am confident the President will be treated more fairly in the Senate.”
