Hartzler explains impeachment vote

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-Harrisonville) issued the following statement this afternoon rejecting the House’s vote on an article of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday. The House voted 232-197 in favor of impeachment.


“America is hurting. After a year of riots in our streets, COVID restrictions and health challenges, and a contentious election, our citizens need healing — not further actions which tear us apart. This latest push by Speaker Pelosi and Democrats to impeach a duly-elected president seven days shy of leaving office does nothing to bridge this gap or work towards President-elect Biden’s declared ‘Unity’ message, instead further dividing our nation.


“It’s already been made clear: Congress certified the 2020 presidential results and this election is over. We owe it to our nation to move past these divisive tactics and work towards bringing America — and our communities — together,” Hartzler said.
