Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan released the following statement following today’s vote by the Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Trump:
“The actions taken by the Democrats voting to impeach President Trump are unconscionable. They couldn’t beat him in an election, so they have weaponized this rarely used tool to try and harm our president. The entire process was a one sided hit job. The transcript in question doesn’t say or prove their charges – it exonerates President Trump!
“The American people are saying loudly this is not what we need or want for our nation – especially when the charges are false. Their bar of impeachment has been lowered to a despicable level of dirty politics.
“The Democrats’ hatred has blinded them. They will pay dearly in the 2020 elections. America deserves better than their cheap abusive use of power. The ‘swamp’ is deeper than we could have imagined. We will not stop trying to drain it as we fight to take back our country.
“Thank you to our Alabama Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives – Rep. Bradley Byrne, Rep. Martha Roby, Rep. Mike Rogers, Rep. Robert Aderholt, Rep. Mo Brooks and Rep. Gary Palmer – not only for voting NO, but also for speaking out throughout the entire sham process that led up to today. They truly represented the will of Alabama’s electorate with their actions.”
