Webster: A Paucity of Evidence

Washington, DC – Florida Congressman Daniel Webster, R-Clermont, released the following statement on the sham-impeachment of President Trump.

“To quote Professor Jonathan Turley, ‘a paucity of evidence, but an abundance of anger’ has driven this impeachment against President Trump. None of the witnesses or evidence confirmed Democrats’ allegations of quid pro quo, bribery, or extortion. The Articles of Impeachment exposes the bad faith of House Democrats. Blinded by their hatred of a duly-elected President, House Democrats are ignoring the facts and the role of the judicial branch in Article III of the U.S. Constitution.  The constitution specifically empowers our federal courts to serve as the umpire in disputes between the legislative and executive branches. This impeachment and today’s vote are not about facts or the constitution, it is about overturning and blocking the will of American voters.”
