Stauber Statement on Vote Against Impeachment Resolution
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Pete Stauber (MN-08) released the following statement after voting no on the impeachment resolution.
“For weeks, Adam Schiff and Speaker Pelosi have deprived the American people of a fair and transparent impeachment process by holding closed door hearings, preventing Members of Congress from listening in on the cross examination of witnesses, stopping Republican Members from calling their own witnesses, and leaking cherry-picked bits of testimony to members of the press.
“The American people deserve better than these Soviet-style impeachment proceedings. Today, I voted against the impeachment resolution as it would allow Schiff to continue to act as prosecutor, judge, and juror and do absolutely nothing to provide this Administration with the same due process rights which were afforded in past presidential impeachments. It is critical to note that while Democrat Leadership chooses to continue with these unfair impeachment proceedings, serious issues like lowering the cost of healthcare, modernizing our infrastructure, and growing our economy are being put on the backburner.”
