PRESS RELEASE: EFFECTIVE UPON RELEASE 12/18/19 7:45pm
RE: Impeachment Proceedings against President Trump
Connie Beard, Chairman of the McLean County Republicans released the following statement:
“The impeachment process, as conducted by the House Democrats, has been abused and diminished. The framers of our constitution did not design it to be used as a weapon by a political party at odds with a President, over matters that do not meet the standard of treason, bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors. No proof of crimes or evidence of malpractice has been presented. The actions of the House Democrats jeopardize the integrity of the impeachment process for future administrations. Being at odds with the style of governing by a sitting president does not constitute grounds for impeachment. The hope is that the Senate will make quick work of their portion of the trial as the American people have no taste for what they are being served by Congress.”
Well said Connie!
