Washington D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Ted Budd (NC-13) officially announced that he will vote no on the articles of impeachment against President Trump after the House Judiciary Committee sent them to the floor.
Rep. Budd said in a statement:
“I will be voting against the articles of impeachment. From start to finish House Democrats ran a show trial against President Trump. They brought forward no witnesses who were directed by the president to engage in any kind of bribe, extortion scheme, or other poll-tested crime House Democrats decided to pursue. Even Speaker Pelosi admitted that her caucus had their eyes on impeachment for ‘a couple years.’ Sadly, this whole inquiry has been purely political. The American people deserve a Congress that is focused on issues that directly impact their lives, not distracted by politically-driven charades.”
