Congressman Biggs Addresses Calls to Impeach President Trump for Second Time

January 8, 2021
Press Release

GILBERT, ARIZONA – Today, Congressman Andy Biggs released the following statement, addressing the growing calls to wrongfully impeach President Donald J. Trump, for the second time.

“This week’s attack on the U.S. Capitol was shameful and despicable, and all Republicans, including President Trump, have denounced the violence we experienced that day.

“Democrats and the Left are using the Capitol breach to once again try to take out the President, just a few days before he will leave office. They have called for the President’s removal pursuant to the 25th Amendment.

“When that fails, as it surely will, Democrats have promised to rush a second impeachment of the president. They hope to destroy the political movement he has created by destroying its leader. They have hated Trump since before he pulled off the shocking presidential upset in 2016 over a corrupt Democrat nominee. I unequivocally oppose this brewing impeachment plot.

“Even before Donald J. Trump was inaugurated, Democrats were planning to impeach him. Democrats manufactured hoax after hoax to undermine President Trump and his administration. They set up a team of partisan prosecutors under Robert Mueller to attack the president and his allies. Finally, they exploited a private phone call between President Trump and the Ukraine president to mollify their desire to remove the President from office. Thankfully, their efforts to remove the president and overthrow the will of the American people failed in the Senate.

“President Trump has fought the Swamp, the radical left, the mainstream media, many within the establishment of his own party, and foreign actors intent on diminishing America’s greatness. He will leave behind a legacy filled with remarkable achievements. President Trump kept his promises to the American people in spite of some of the most vehement opposition a president has ever faced. The Democrats’ lies and spiteful efforts to remove him from office yet again will never change his legacy nor the positive ways that he impacted the future of our nation.”
