Gallagher Statement on Senate Acquittal of President Trump
Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today issued the following statement after the Senate voted to acquit the President on both articles of impeachment.
“Throughout this trial, the House Impeachment Managers made two contradictory arguments that, taken together, proved fatal to their case. On the one hand, they claimed to have overwhelming evidence of an impeachable offense. Yet on the other hand, they simultaneously claimed they needed more witnesses in order to make their case. Both these claims cannot be true.
“The fact remains this is the first impeachment that asserts no underlying crime and is the product of a rushed and broken process. I hope that after today’s vote my colleagues on both sides of the aisle will come together to address the real problems facing this country: rising healthcare costs, aging infrastructure, and a workforce shortage.”
