WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) released the following statement after House Democrats announced two articles of impeachment against President Trump:

“House Democrats have sought to impeach President Trump since the day he took office. In 2017, the whistleblower’s attorney, Mark Zaid, tweeted that the ‘coup has started’ and ‘impeachment will follow ultimately.’ After the Russian collusion narrative was disproven by Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Democrats settled on a new path toward their desire to impeach and accused the President of high crimes and misdemeanors. The facts presented in the Intelligence and Judiciary Committee hearings do not amount to an impeachable offense. Unfortunately, this purely political process establishes a sad precedent for our nation and may result in impeachment of the President any time the House of Representatives is controlled by the opposing party,” said Congressman Brad Wenstrup
