IMPEACHMENT WAS OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN, SAYS REP. SCOTT DESJARLAIS

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Scott DesJarlais, M.D., who voted against President Trump’s impeachment in the House of Representatives, released the following statement after the Senate acquitted him of Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Justice:

“In the midst of Democrats’ latest impeachment charade, their fourth since taking the House majority, Donald Trump is experiencing his highest personal approval ratings and highest ratings of any president in the last 20 years for his handling of the economy. His approval has improved, as support for impeachment has declined. Independent voters are also giving his State of the Union address excellent reviews. While we work together to further strengthen the economy, create jobs and training programs, seal new trade deals, and rebuild the military, Democrats are already planning more attempts to remove the President from office, because our America First agenda is successful, and socialism is not. After the Russia Hoax and several others, my constituents are wise to their games, wasting our time, energy and resources. Impeachment, with no witnesses to any crimes or evidence, and only vague charges, was destined to fail from the beginning. Our country, however, is safer, stronger and more prosperous today under the President’s leadership.”
