December 18, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) released the below statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump:

“For months, House Democrats have wasted time and taxpayer resources on a sham impeachment process. Moments ago, they voted to impeach President Trump simply for the fact that they don’t like him. They have no facts or evidence to support their baseless claims. This impeachment process has been a partisan witch hunt since the start, and it has degraded the very important legislative tool we have in Congress to hold a President accountable for high crimes and misdemeanors,” said Rep. Austin Scott. “I voted ‘NO’ on the articles of impeachment, and I will continue to work with the President and his Administration to keep America the greatest country in the world.”
