Griffith Statement on President Trump’s Acquittal

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to acquit President Trump:

“The Senate has finally ended an ordeal that never should have started. Democrats in the House brushed aside principles of fairness and impartiality in conducting this impeachment process, yet, in my belief, they failed to find impeachable offenses. The Senate agreed.

“President Trump was rightfully acquitted. Now it’s time to get back to work on the real issues confronting the American people.”
