BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) released the following statement regarding House Democrats impeaching President Trump for a second time in a year.

“Impeaching the President only serves to further divide this nation by fanning the flames of partisanship. Congress could have taken the high road, but instead it has chosen to take the low one.

“President Trump’s Administration began with one-in-three Congressional Democrats boycotting his inauguration, the founding of the “resist” movement, the now debunked Russian collusion narrative and undermining the Administration at every turn. Now in the last hours of this Administration, Speaker Pelosi has chosen to bring an expedited impeachment resolution the House floor that has no chance of going anywhere in the U.S. Senate all the while calling for bipartisanship.”

“We have all condemned the violence that happened during last week’s demonstrations at the U.S. Capitol. There is no place for it, and I am demanding full accountability for the those who engaged in such actions. Rather than seeking healing, this impeachment effort reeks of revenge that may satisfy a political appetite but will only serve to make healing more difficult in the days and weeks ahead as a new President, Joe Biden, is inaugurated.”
