Wesley Hunt Statement on Democratic Impeachment Proceedings

Houston, TX – Today, after more than two and half years of investigations, House Democrats finally announced their impeachment charges against President Trump.  In response to these charges, Republican Wesley Hunt released the following statement:

“The framers of the Constitution were very specific about the standards of impeachment and made clear that it should never be used as a political weapon against an opponent. Nevertheless, that is exactly what the Democratic Party is doing.

Since Donald Trump became President of the United States, Democrats began discussing impeaching him, regardless of colossal lack of evidence of High Crimes and Misdemeanors; as outlined in Article II, Section 4.

Let’s be clear, this impeachment effort is not about upholding the Constitution, it is about overturning the results of the 2016 Presidential election. It is also an assault on our democratic process and the 63 million Americans who voted for this President.

As your Congressman, I will fight any attempt to continue this partisan political charade and focus my efforts on serving the needs of the constituents of Congressional District 7. This is what the people of CD7 elected Congresswoman Fletcher to do, however by supporting this impeachment effort, she has both failed to honor her responsibilities to the office and her obligations to the voters.”
