Press Release

Washington, DC - Today, Congressman David Schweikert released the following statement after voting ‘no’ on impeachment proceedings introduced against President Donald Trump.

"After the despicable events of January 6th, it is more important than ever that the United States Congress do the work of the people and direct our focus entirely on conquering the ongoing issues our great nation is facing. Today's vote fails to do that.  It divides Congress even further at a time when we should be setting an example for the nation by showing we can put politics aside and put the country first. I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to focus their time and effort on finding common ground, and working together to find real solutions to our nation's most pressing issues. I believe that if we can find a way to do that, together we can do our part in solving many of nation's greatest challenges."
