Lake Area Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler says the country can do without California Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s political vendetta against President Donald Trump.
In a statement, Hartzler says the House Speaker’s actions are self-serving and they provide a disservice to the country.
Pelosi wants to use the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove President Trump in another attempt at impeachment.
Hartzler also stated that she stands with Missouri Senator Josh Hawley as many Democrats and other Republicans are calling for him to step down, following his vote against the electoral college results.
She says he shouldn’t be punished for questioning fraud in any Presidential election and that she appreciates his push to see that future elections are “more secure.”
Hartzler Statement on Speaker Pelosi’s Efforts to Remove the President from Office
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) made the following statement regarding Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s intent to bring legislation to the floor calling on the Vice President to invoke the 25th amendment followed by articles of impeachment to remove the President:
“The forced removal of the President with less than a week remaining in his term is a political theater that the nation can do without. America is struggling to come together following the riots and violence at the Capitol, and this friction will grow worse because of Speaker Pelosi’s political vendetta. The nation should not be subjected to more animosity simply because Speaker Pelosi seeks to settle a score. I will not be supporting her efforts.
Next week, Joe Biden will be sworn in as President of the United States. We should be focused on bringing our nation together, not tearing it further apart. The Speaker’s actions are self-serving and do nothing other than provide a great disservice to our country.”
