Statement from Republicans Overseas on the House of Representatives’ Vote to Impeach President Trump (January 14, 2021)
Yesterday’s partisan vote to impeach President Trump increases the political divide that separates Americans and runs counter to President-elect Biden’s commitment to bring Americans together. All Republicans, including President Trump, have denounced the extremists who occupied the Capitol building. We all mourn the people who died that day.
Democrats, instead of looking to heal the Nation after a heated election, are now conducting a purge. Freedom of speech is being suppressed in a Chinese fashion. Innocent Americans who peacefully attended the protest on January 6th in Washington and who did not enter the Capitol building are now being called Nazis and having their livelihoods threatened.
75 million American citizens voted for President Trump. Republicans Overseas stands with them to defend the Constitution, especially the First Amendment rights of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, a free press, and the right of the people peaceably to assemble. We oppose cancel culture and its impact on all American citizens. We call on the Democrats to turn down the rhetoric and join us in standing up for the rights of all citizens.
