House Democrats Vote to Overturn the Results of the 2016 Election
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to overturn the results of the 2016 election. Congressman Biggs voted against this vindictive, partisan sham and issued the following statement:
“Democrats have pursued a predetermined outcome for three years, and today, voted to overturn the will of 63 million Americans who voted for Donald J. Trump. This is a dark day for the United States of America. History will abhor the Democrats’ radical, vindictive efforts to punish, harass, and remove their political opponent.
“Democrats have lied about the content of the July 25 call that was shamelessly exploited, met secretly with the whistleblower, held Soviet-style hearings behind closed doors, blocked the President’s counsel from participating in the fact-finding portion of the inquisition, refused to allow Republicans to call key witnesses, obstructed Republicans from asking questions, broke key House rules, and contorted the facts and context behind the Ukraine phone call to fit their predetermined narrative. Democrats started their impeachment movement in the immediate aftermath of President Trump’s election, and they have not relented to this day.
“If Americans think that this divisive impeachment will end soon, they are sadly mistaken. House Democrats are promising to recommit their efforts after the Senate commences their process, no matter what outcome they reach. Thankfully, I anticipate the Senate will vote swiftly to exonerate the President, and he will continue to keep the promises he made to the American people. We are grateful for President Trump and all of his hard work to make our nation great. He is the leader our nation selected and needed for this consequential time in American history.”
