Key Vote Alert: “NO” ON THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, H.RES.755

  |  

Club for Growth opposes the Articles of Impeachment (H.Res.755) against President Trump and urges all Representatives to vote no on each Article. The resolution is expected to be considered soon in the House of Representatives. The results of the vote will be included in the Club for Growth Foundation’s 2019 Congressional Scorecard.

Almost from the founding of our Republic our forefathers realized that using impeachment to remove political opponents inflicts great damage on our country. Sadly, the recent hearings and debate have demonstrated that is exactly what the Democrats in the House of Representatives are doing today.

The Constitution sets a high bar to remove a duly elected President that at a minimum includes criminal behavior. Yet, no evidence of criminal wrongdoing has been found and the Articles of Impeachment do not include any charges of a criminal action, treason, or bribery – despite the years long Mueller investigation and the House Intelligence Committee investigation into the President’s call with the Ukrainian President.

The Articles of Impeachment, H.Res.755, consist of nebulous Article I: Abuse of Power; and Article II: Obstruction of Congress. In fact, the President was acting within his realm of authority under Article II of the Constitution. Specifically, he is the chief law enforcement officer of the country and Congress had repeatedly charged him with investigating corruption in the Ukraine before releasing foreign aid money to them. Additionally, the President, not Congress, is vested by the Constitution to engage in negotiations with foreign countries.

Beginning just days after his election to be President of the United States, political opponents in Washington began strategizing to impeach and remove President Trump from office. During the past three years, the President has fought off repeated efforts to reverse the 2016 election results through impeachment.

Now the impeachment inquiry clearly has become a political exercise intended to damage President Trump’s reelection. This attempted abuse of the constitutional checks and balances should be soundly rejected by Congress.

Club for Growth Foundation’s Congressional Scorecard for the 116th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to the public.
