Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) released the following statement in strong opposition to Democrats’ announcement of articles of impeachment against President Trump:

“No one is surprised that House Democrats have announced another step in their pre-ordained decision to take down the President at any cost with their articles of impeachment. After all, the American people know this has been the Democrats’ goal since President Trump was elected. For Democrats to assert that the President abused his power, when in actuality they are abusing the power of their majority by wasting taxpayer dollars and time with this witch-hunt, is an ironic twist in this political theater. Additionally, the true obstruction of Congress is the work that this Democratic-led House has failed to accomplish – like funding the government and securing our border. Should these articles of impeachment come to a vote on the House floor, I will vote no.”
