Rep. Green Statement on Transmission of Impeachment Articles to Senate

WASHINGTON – Today, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats named impeachment managers and voted to transmit the impeachment articles to the Senate after an unprecedented 28-day delay.

Green said, “This has never been anything but a partisan sham to overturn a national election and silence the voices of 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump. Six of the seven impeachment managers Speaker Pelosi appointed today supported impeaching this President before the whistleblower complaint was even filed. This isn’t about facts—this is about reversing our last election and rigging the next one.”

“Democrats promised us the evidence was ‘overwhelming’ and the case was ‘urgent’,” Green continued, “but the only bipartisan vote was against impeachment and Democrats sat on the articles for four weeks because they knew they did such a terrible job establishing any evidence of an impeachable offense.”

“Despite a constant smear campaign from the left,” Green said, “President Trump continues to deliver for Americans, only today signing a landmark Phase One Trade Agreement with China. Democrats know they can’t run against this President’s record, so they are obsessed with impeaching him.”
