Rep. Estes Applauds Senate Acquittal of President Donald Trump
WASHINGTON–Congressman Ron Estes (R-Kansas) released the following statement after the Senate acquitted President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment:
"Our founders established a Constitution and a government that is rooted in freedom, truth and the will of the American people. The articles of impeachment that were passed in the House and debated in the Senate did not reach the Constitution's threshold of high crimes and misdemeanors, as confirmed by the final vote. Instead, they threatened the very core of our republic," said Rep. Estes. "The Senate's acquittal today thankfully closes a dark chapter in our nation's history. The Kansans I'm honored to represent have told me for many months that it is time for Congress to move beyond these divisive, partisan games and focus on real legislation that affects the American people – lowering health care costs, securing our border and reigning in out-of-control government spending."
Ron Estes is a 5th generation Kansan and represents Kansas’ 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means.
