Congressman Darrell Issa Will Vote Against Impeachment

Congressman Darrell Issa Will Vote Against Impeachment

On January 11 Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) released the following statement Monday evening explaining his reasons for not supporting a second impeachment of President Trump:

“It is deeply disappointing that Speaker Pelosi and majority Democrats are refusing to join with Republicans in uniting the Congress and helping to bring the country together. And it is truly unfortunate that they are instead choosing to rush ahead with a second presidential impeachment in less than 12 months. If this gratuitous and unnecessary measure reaches the House floor, I cannot support it.

This won’t do anything to bring us together – and I fear will do much to drive the Congress and the country even further apart. Rather than a time for conflict, this is an ideal opportunity to turn down the rhetoric in Washington and strengthen the ties that bind us. What we should be doing right now is uniting as Americans and doing our part in the peaceful transition of power.

I ran for and returned to Congress to get to work on ending the coronavirus pandemic, addressing the vital economic and infrastructure needs of my district, and safeguarding America’s national security. So did my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. The voters did not send us here to do this.

There is still time to for cooler heads to prevail. I hope Speaker Pelosi can be persuaded to stop further dividing us. I further hope that President-Elect Biden will choose to constructively engage the nation he intends to lead.

The stakes are too great for us to fail.”
