WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, House Democrats commenced another unconstitutional attempt to overthrow America's duly elected President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, by impeaching him for a second time. Today's impeachment comes with no committee hearings and no due process to investigate the claims and allegations that Democrats levied against President Trump. Congressman Biggs voted NO and issued the following statement:
'The impeachment of President Trump, less than a week before he relinquishes power, does what Democrats wrongfully claim President Trump did on January 6. It pours gas on the smoldering embers, which consists of tens of millions of Americans who have serious doubts about the integrity of our elections and are more angry than aggrieved.
'Leftists believe that impeaching the President for a second time will destroy Trump's remodel of the Republican Party. This new movement is defined by Trump's America first policies that gave us a roaring economy, a COVID vaccine, Middle East stability and peace, kept us out of any new wars while rebuilding the military, strengthened the U.S. position in trade agreements, and against our adversaries in China, North Korea, Russia and elsewhere, and dozens of other positive results.
'The 'great unifiers' in the Democrat Party and the media, worked to delegitimize President Trump before and during his entire presidency. Joined by their new ally, big business, they are working to eliminate the Republican Party. They don't want the status quo ante; they want single party rule. Their zeal in seeking removal of the President only a week before he leaves office is not healing, nor will it kill this movement.
'Violence has been condemned, but it takes more than lip service to prevent violence. It takes resisting the temptation to destroy President Trump, and a realization that his removal now has the unfortunate likelihood of creating a conflagration. I am disappointed that cooler heads did not prevail amongst Democrats today.'
