Rep. Arrington Opposes Impeachment, Calls for Unity
Washington, January 12, 2021
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Jodey Arrington (TX-19) released the following the statement:
“Our nation’s leaders should rise to the occasion and unify our country, instead of calling for impeachment, which only serves to deepen our nation’s divides,” stated Arrington. “I do not see ‘high crimes or misdemeanors’ requisite of impeachment, which is not to excuse poor judgment exercised by the President surrounding the events of January 6th.
“In the wake of the violent protests at the Capitol, Republicans and Democrats should come together. We must universally and unanimously condemn political violence of all kinds and use this moment to commit to dialing back the political rhetoric. The electoral votes have been certified, President Trump has conceded, and now is the time to unify our country and move forward with a focus on the People’s business. To drum up another impeachment proceeding seems politically opportunistic and completely tone deaf to a nation that needs to heal.”
