Ten House Republicans Who Voted to Impeach President Trump Condemned.
State Party Chairman says “This type of sham process has become the norm for Democrats, but no Republican should support or give in to such an abuse of our Constitutional system.”
Salem, OR – The Oregon Republican Party released a statement announcing that the attached resolution has been passed by the State Party Executive Committee condemning the betrayal by the ten House Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump last week:
“Our party is speaking out in condemnation of the profound betrayal by the ten House Republicans who supported impeaching President Trump last week without any investigation, hearing, shred of due process, and in contradiction to the known and emerging facts,” said Oregon Republican Party Chairman Bill Currier. “This type of sham process has become the norm for Democrats, but no Republican should support or give in to such an abuse of our Constitutional system.”
“On January 6th, we immediately condemned the political violence in the strongest possible terms and called for those actually committing the violent acts to be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The President called only for ‘peaceful’ voicing of concerns and has repudiated and disavowed anyone who did otherwise that day. The record shows that President Trump in no way incited the violence which actually started 20 minutes before the President finished his remarks far from the Capitol Building itself.”
“We demand a full and transparent public investigation of the actual instigators of the violence, and of the nearly nonexistent Capitol Hill security that was warned in advance by the FBI, refused assistance from the Pentagon, and is shown on video allowing demonstrators into the Capitol Building. None of this was considered by the House of Representatives in the sham impeachment process last week.”
“Of equally grave concern is how Democrats and their enablers are trying to falsely assign blame to the peaceful protesters present that day, the members of Congress who followed the law and the Constitution, and to tens of millions of Trump supporters,” said Currier. “This or any attempt to cancel or target anyone with deep concerns about the conduct of the 2020 election, or quite simply anyone who disagrees with Joe Biden and his supporters, should receive zero GOP support. In fact, it should be condemned and opposed by anyone who still believes in free speech, the right to peaceably assemble, and the right to petition our government to redress grievances. The effort underway to erase the freedoms and liberties of millions of Americans should be opposed by all Americans.”
