Political Revenge Impeachment Not Good for the Country
Washington, D.C. – This evening, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and House Democrats will formally transmit the article of impeachment against former President Donald J. Trump to the United States Senate. House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland) is expected to read the article of impeachment on the Senate floor at roughly 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), had this to say concerning the prospect of a political impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate:
“At a time when the country needs healing and reconciliation, the Democrats’ insistence on this constitutionally dubious political assault on a former president and his approximately 74 million supporters is unconscionable.
“There are serious issues that require immediate congressional action—from the pandemic to the economy to our national defense. That Democratic leadership finds it appropriate to waste the country’s time on yet another attempt at getting their political nemesis, Donald Trump, shows what little regard they have for the public’s needs. They are willing to inflict further damage on our frail national social fabric in order to get their political revenge.
“Senators from both sides of the aisle should consider what is best for the country as they proceed. They should not risk the nation’s long-term welfare for petty political resentment. They should put an end to this impeachment charade and move forward with the people’s business.”
