Emmer Statement on Impeachment

December 18, 2019

Washington, D.C. - Today, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) issued the following statement regarding his vote in opposition to the Articles of Impeachment: 

"Today is a historic day, but not for the reason House Democrats had hoped. Today, one political party abused the Constitution to advance their own political agenda without a single vote from the other side of the aisle, and with members of their own conference joining in opposition. House Democrats claim they did not come to Congress to impeach a President, but many of them encouraged impeachment in the days immediately following the President’s inauguration. I voted against these articles of impeachment because this process has unfortunately devolved into a partisan persecution. The American people have entrusted us to address the issues most important to the growth and success of our nation. By working towards impeachment for the past three years, Democrats have ensured this House has failed them. I look forward to ending this political charade and hope we can finally return our focus to the very real and pressing issues facing our country.”
