Conference Chairman Barrasso Statement on House Democrats’ Impeachment Vote

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement after House Democrats voted to impeach the president:

“Democrats have been obsessed with impeaching President Trump since day one. Tonight, they cast one of the most divisive votes in American history. This political and partisan impeachment is rapidly losing public support.

“Senate Republicans are ready to proceed to trial. We will then get back to work and focus on policy issues important to the American people. These include lowering out-of-pocket health care costs, securing our borders, fixing roads and bridges, and continuing a strong, healthy, and growing economy.”
