Rogers votes against Trump’s impeachment

WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Rep. Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05) released the following statement after voting against the impeachment of President Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives. Congressman Rogers denounced House Democrats for proceeding with articles of impeachment without citation of a crime.

“Speaker Pelosi has spent the last three years building to this day. Despite the flawed, partisan sham of a process – much of which took place behind closed doors – House Democrats still cannot present a shred of evidence to show President Trump committed an impeachable offense.

There was no Quid Pro Quo, no high crime or misdemeanor — only a group of House members dead set on removing a duly elected President at any cost. I voted against the articles of impeachment because this is a shameful political charade that has divided our nation. We need to move on from this spectacle and do the job we were elected to do for the American people.”
