Alexander and Blackburn on impeachment
US Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., says that impeaching President Donald Trump “would be a mistake.” The retiring US Senator issued a statement on Wednesday saying the American people should decide on the presidency. Several committees in the Democrat-led House are investigating Trump’s effort to push Ukraine to investigate Democrat Joe Biden, reportedly in exchange for military funding which had earlier been approved by Congress. Republican leaders are hoping to prevent divisions within their party in a battle expected to dominate Washington and to be a major factor in next year’s presidential and congressional elections. In his statement Alexander said, “It’s inappropriate for the president to be talking with foreign governments about investigating his political opponents, but impeachment would be a mistake. An election, which is just around the corner, is the right way to decide who should be president. Impeachment has never removed a president. It will only divide the country further.” Fellow Tennessee US Senator, Republican Marsha Blackburn, however has been more critical of the House impeachment inquiry process saying “The White House is simply asking for (House Speaker Nancy) Pelosi and (U.S. Rep. Adam) Schiff to abide by the same rules and practices of past impeachment proceedings. Impeachment of our president is not an excuse to put on a political circus, and House Democrats have yet to assure the American public they will proceed fairly or respect due process.” And she adds, "for three years, the Democrats only goal has been to impeach DonaldTrump by any means necessary. " Democrats say exposing the president's actions are important so that voters have all the facts going into the 2020 presidential election.
