Calls result just and appropriate given baseless House impeachment

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) Tuesday issued the following statement after the United States Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial:


“I thank the United States Senate for voting to acquit President Donald Trump. It was the only just and appropriate result from the baseless impeachment articles sent over from the House.


“For over four full months, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the leaders of the impeachment movement needlessly divided our country as their contempt for President Trump and the people who elected him overshadowed the fact that they had no facts and no evidence on which to base their sham impeachment.


“The stain of this impeachment will be on the elected officials who attempted to railroad the President, wasted millions of taxpayer dollars, and sought to overturn the 2016 election for fear of losing the 2020 election.


“It is my hope that both sides of the aisle can move on from this together and work substantively and productively in a bipartisan fashion on things that truly benefit the American people, like reducing the cost of prescription drugs, fixing our ailing infrastructure, and standing up for our veterans.”
