Minnesota Congressman Hagedorn Votes Against Impeachment
Washington (KROC AM News) - Minnesota First District Congressman Jim Hagedorn joined 196 other House Republicans in voting against the second impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Hagedorn represents southern Minnesota.
Following Wednesday's vote, Rep. Hagedorn issued the following statement:
“Instead of looking toward the future and doing the business of the American people, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have prosecuted another unwarranted and politically-motivated impeachment.
“This latest effort by House Democrats to impeach President Trump is further dividing an already splintered nation and subjecting the American people to yet another partisan battle. Democrats began working to impeach and remove the President before he even took the Oath of Office four years ago. They lack credibility on this issue. It is time to move forward as a nation.”
Minnesota’s Congressional voted along party lines on the historic impeachment amendment.
Democrat Representative Angie Craig released the following statement on her vote to impeach President Donald J. Trump.
“Nearly four years ago, on the steps of the United States Capitol, President-elect Donald Trump swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and to faithfully execute the duties of his office to the best of his ability. Last week, the nation watched in horror as an angry mob of insurrectionists – summoned and incited by President Trump – marched on those same steps and attacked the Capitol, resulting in five deaths, including a Capitol Police officer.
Like President Trump, I took an oath to uphold our Constitution and defend our Democracy. Unlike the President, I intend to uphold mine. After witnessing and experiencing the January 6th attack on our Capitol, it is clear that President Trump asked these terrorists to show up in Washington, assembled them and incited them to march to the Capitol to attack a separate branch of government. For that reason, I am voting today in support of his impeachment.”
