WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge), whose congressional district encompasses all of Brevard and Indian River Counties, and a portion of east Orange County, voted against both Articles of Impeachment laid against President Donald Trump along with all of his fellow House Republicans.
“The two articles of impeachment in the resolution are broad and cite no specific crimes that the President committed,” Posey said.
“The House Democrats are basing the entire impeachment on hearsay testimonies grounded on absolutely no evidence of a crime. Sadly, this impeachment is the worst case of partisan politics in the history of our Republic.”
The House of Representatives passed both Articles of Impeachment almost entirely along party lines.
Two Democrats and all of the House Republicans voted against Article One, abuse of power. Article One was passed in the House of Representatives by a vote of 230-197 with one vote of “present.”
Three Democrats and all of the House Republicans voted against Article Two, obstruction of Congress. Article Two was passed in the House of Representatives by a vote of 229-198 with one vote of “present.”
The Impeachment process now moves on to the U.S. Senate for trial.
