End this impeachment sham — House managers lack any foundation.
Washington, D.C.: After rushing the ham-fisted impeachment of President Donald Trump through the House, Democrats brought the process to a screeching halt. They delayed turning over articles of impeachment to the Senate and they are stalling during the trial by demanding more witnesses and evidence.
“All of America sees right through this sham,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “House Democrats know they can logjam the Senate even longer if they drag out this trial. They can prevent the Senate from confirming judges and continuing with their work. It’s despicable and it must end now.
“Every Senator should vote to restore the dignity of their chambers. Senators should vote against calling new witnesses. They should then immediately vote to acquit President Trump. The President’s legal team has proven without a doubt that there has been no violation of law or public trust. The President is and has been working for the citizens of the United States.
“To the Senate: vote no to witnesses and vote to acquit the President. Vote to end this national embarrassment.”
