Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan issued the following statement following the transmission of Articles of Impeachment against former President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate:
“This is the greatest display of abject partisanship by the Democrats I have ever witnessed during my political lifetime. During his Inaugural address, President Biden spoke repeatedly of the need to unite our country using ‘unity/uniting’ no fewer than nine times. He also pledged to ‘be a President for all Americans’. Today’s actions are the exact opposite of unity. His party’s persistence on their path of ‘Get Trump’ with the transmission of these irresponsible and false articles of impeachment against President Trump, now a private citizen, are an abuse of political power. Instead of showing us how he will work to heal our great nation and focus on the important issues we are facing, President Biden is playing second fiddle to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their ultra left-wing agenda. No evidence, no hearings, no nothing – just shameful political abuse of power.
“If President Biden doesn’t ask the Democrats to stand down and spend their time on serious issues facing the American people, his ‘unity’ plea is a complete farce. This obvious political vendetta will be met with fierce response in election booths across the nation in 2022. A reminder to them all that on November 3, 2020, there was a massive Republican wave across our country in U.S. House seats and state legislatures – and that was no accident. There are 75 million voters that will be loudly heard again in the U.S. House and Senate elections on our ballots if this type of deplorable behavior continues.”
