Miss. Senator Says Second Rushed Impeachment is a Mistake
WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today released the following statement on the House of Representatives delivering an article of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump:
“Impeaching President Trump is a mistake. The effort to remove a President who is no longer in office raises serious constitutional questions and threatens to delay national healing. This article of impeachment was rushed through the House of Representatives shortly after the Capitol riot without hearings or any careful consideration of evidence or precedent.
“A second impeachment trial is sure to inflame partisan tensions and could poison the cooperative spirit we need in a 50-50 Senate. I fear it will also bring more reproach on Congress’s solemn impeachment power, which should be used sparingly and with sober deliberation. The Senate has important business to do and should not be held up by a pointless and divisive delay.
“I will vote to dismiss this article of impeachment against President Trump.”
