“House Democrats made a conscious decision to ignore the will and abandon the interests of their fellow Americans. They say this duly-elected president is a unique danger that the strongest democracy in the world isn’t fit to address. They claim the only way to protect our elections is by nullifying one and rigging another. In the same breath, they ask Americans to trust a party that can’t even convince its own members to support their leadership’s guerrilla tactics.”

WASHINGTON — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement after Democrats in the House of Representatives passed a resolution impeaching President Donald Trump.

“Without offering sufficient evidence or alleging actual crimes, Democrats have committed an injustice that extends beyond any one presidency. Today’s vote reveals their disregard for the Constitutional protections due to all citizens — including President Trump. That disregard threatens the liberties of every American.

“Democrats surveyed the ruins of their failed 2016 bid and concluded that they couldn’t trust Americans to elect Democrats in 2020. As a result, they have sold out due process, fairness and the presumption of innocence for their own political advantage.

“Today, House Democrats made a conscious decision to ignore the will and abandon the interests of their fellow Americans. They say this duly-elected president is a unique danger that the strongest democracy in the world isn’t fit to address. They claim the only way to protect our elections is by nullifying one and rigging another. In the same breath, they ask Americans to trust a party that can’t even convince its own members to support their leadership’s guerrilla tactics.

“Democrats abused their power throughout this impeachment and have said they’re ready to do it again. They’re resolute. They intend to overturn the will of the people whenever it conflicts with the will of liberal elites, and that albatross will hang heavy around their necks for generations to come.”
