Cotton, Hawley, Colleagues Introduce Resolution to Allow Dismissal of ‘Bogus Impeachment’ Against President Trump

Written by Press Release

January 6, 2020

Washington, D.C. – In response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unprecedented attempt to prevent an impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate, Senators Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) today introduced a resolution to update Senate rules to allow a motion to dismiss articles of impeachment for lack of prosecution. Senators Rick Scott (R-Florida), Mike Braun (R-Indiana), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Steve Daines (R-Montana), John Barrasso (R-Wyoming), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), David Perdue (R-Georgia), and Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) are original cosponsors of the proposed resolution.

“By failing to deliver the articles of impeachment, the Democrats are admitting they bumbled their partisan impeachment. If the articles aren’t delivered in a timely manner, they should be dismissed,” said Cotton.

“Speaker Pelosi started this bogus impeachment by claiming President Trump was an urgent ‘threat to democracy’ who had to be removed now. But after a bipartisan vote against the articles in the House, and with the public opposed to the Democrats’ partisan games, Pelosi has changed her tune. Now she wants to prevent a Senate trial, perhaps indefinitely. But the Constitution gives the Senate sole power to adjudicate articles of impeachment, not the House. If Speaker Pelosi is afraid to try her case, the articles should be dismissed for failure to prosecute and Congress should get back to doing the people’s business,” said Hawley.
