Barrasso Statement on Impeachment Vote
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) issued the following statement after voting to acquit former President Donald J. Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.
“From day one, and consistent with my duty to the Constitution, I opposed this impeachment trial of a private citizen and former president. Today I voted for acquittal.
“This unconstitutional impeachment trial is now over.
“It is time for Congress to move forward.
“We have an opportunity to bring about some much-needed healing by focusing on our greatest needs.
“There is important work to be done for the people of Wyoming and our country. We can start by working together to bring back jobs, get kids safely back to school, and by putting the virus behind us.
“The violence and mayhem of Jan. 6 will never be forgotten. I continue to reflect on the bravery of the men and women who protected our Capitol that day, and honor those who lost their lives in service.”
