Kelly Votes Against Articles of Impeachment

Dec 18, 2019

Washington, D.C. - This evening, the United States House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) released the following statement after voting 'NO' on both articles:

"I was proud to stand with President Trump against this charade by voting against both articles of impeachment. It's ironic that House Democrats accuse President Trump of abusing his power as they blatantly abuse theirs by pursuing a purely partisan impeachment of a duly-elected president. We know this was never about protecting the Constitution, upholding oaths of office, or any of the other self-righteous reasons Democrats are using to justify it, because they committed to this the day the president was elected. The effort to remove him from office has always been about political vengeance and damaging his 2020 re-election campaign."
