Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan released the following statement following today’s vote by the U.S. Senate to acquit President Donald Trump:
“Today’s vote by the U.S. Senate to acquit President Trump confirms what the majority of Alabamians have known all along – that this impeachment sham perpetrated by the Democrats was nothing more than a hyperpartisan mission for the sole purpose of undoing the 2016 election. The majority of our United States Senators saw this charade for exactly what it was and voted accordingly.
“I would like to extend our gratitude to Alabama’s Republican U.S. Senator, Richard Shelby. His vote to acquit shows he is not only a man of his convictions but also respects the will of the majority of his constituents.”
