Rep. LaHood Statement on Articles of Impeachment
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Darin LaHood (R-IL) today released the following statement after House Democrats formally introduced articles of impeachment.
“Since the beginning of President Trump’s term, Democrats have fixated on undoing the results of the 2016 elections, and it is disappointing, but not surprising, that Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are barreling ahead with their impeachment obsession. We are ten months away from early voting in Illinois, yet Democrats would rather attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election than let the people decide in November. Impeachment is the nullification of an election. As a former federal prosecutor, I have seen nothing in the facts or evidence presented so far that supports the high-standard predicate for impeachment.
“The American people didn’t send us to Washington to overturn the results of the 2016 election. Instead of working to tear down President Trump, Democrats should work with Republicans to solve problems for everyday Americans.”
