Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) released the following statement upon the U.S. Senate voting to acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment:

“For months, House Democrats have wasted time and taxpayer resources on a partisan impeachment process against the President fueled by their hatred for him. Moments ago, the Senate voted to acquit President Trump and proved what we’ve been saying all along – there were no facts nor evidence to support impeachment,” said Rep. Austin Scott. “I have asked from the beginning, ‘What was the crime?’ The U.S. Senate has just answered that question. There wasn’t one.”
