Today, the United States Senate acquitted President Trump because the two articles presented were illegitimate, inappropriate, and did not rise to the level of impeachment.
In America, we believe in the rule of law. We believe in due process. We believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty.
House Democrats violated each of these precepts by using impeachment as a partisan political weapon, which our Founders warned against.
House Democrats claimed to have “overwhelming” evidence to convict the president.
Yet, after 17 witnesses in the House, over 28,000 pages of evidence, and 193 videos of testimony, the House failed to prove any wrongdoing.
It’s time to put this dark chapter behind us and get back to work for the American people.
Yesterday, I shared my thoughts on the impeachment process on the Senate floor. You can watch the speech here.
