Washington, D.C.Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05) issued the following statement after voting no on two articles of impeachment against President Trump during today’s House Judiciary Committee markup:

“These articles of impeachment are the weakest in history. The Democrats will stop at nothing to remove a duly-elected President over a policy disagreement—not for bribery, treason, or any high crime and misdemeanor. They have set dangerous precedent today, which undoubtedly weakens the fabric of our government. The Democrats continue to make outlandish charges that the President will steal the 2020 election if he is not impeached, but what they’re really doing is trying to steal back the 2016 election from the 63 million people who elected Donald Trump.”

    GOP, not even hyperbolic to assert this as an acronym for Greedy Oligarch Party anymore, I just hope the Greedy Oligarch Party can get all those free Russian flags mailed out to their constituents in time for Xmas.

  2. Thomas Martinsen says:

    Good acronym, Duane. The THANK GOD AT LAST RETIRING Sensenbrenner relapsed into reverse hyperbole before the impeachment vote by equating the well reasoned and thoughtful remarks of Rep. Adam Schiff with the irrational and hateful Mc Carthy ( the shame from Appleton) – a man eternally linked with the famous question “Have you no shame?”

    Thank God twice yet for the vote to impeach Trump. That could be a first step in keeping us from becoming a part of the next Soviet Union – the new S.U. that Putin would like to build with the likes of Trump and other autocrats.
