Wednesday, December 18, 2019 – Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after voting no on the articles of impeachment against President Trump:
“House Democrats voted today to impeach the President. They impeached President Trump over disputes between the executive branch and the legislative branch that occur in many administrations. In my opinion, they did not actually have the evidence to find ‘high Crimes and Misdemeanors,’ as the Constitution demands.
“House Democrats today abused the power of impeachment. I am sorry they did so, for the millions of Americans who voted for President Trump and for the Constitution that has been damaged.”
