Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) released the following statement after voting no on the resolution to impeach President Donald Trump:

“We are yet again witnessing a brazenly partisan attempt to remove President Trump from the White House with seven days left in office. This has been a primary goal of Democrats since the President took his oath of office on January 20, 2017. This rushed, political stunt made a mockery of what the impeachment process should be – solemn and methodical. There were no hearings, no witness statements, and no evidence presented to Members of Congress. Why? Because it’s a race against the clock – Democrats have one week to appease their radical base. Why else? Because the evidence and timeline would suggest the violence was already in motion before the President’s speech – not incited by it.

“I have never witnessed such hatred for one person, Donald Trump, as I have seen these last four years. The left has tried to remove him from office since 2017 through the fake Russian collusion hoax, the 2019 shampeachment, and the 25th Amendment resolution attempting to blackmail the sitting Vice President. They should be embarrassed. The nonstop hysteria is incredible to witness.

“At its core, this impeachment isn’t about the violence we saw last week – which I unequivocally and fully condemn. It’s about achieving their longtime aspiration at the expense of further dividing our nation.”
