BREAKING: GOP Rep. Fred Upton says he’ll vote to Impeach Trump

Another Republican member of Congress has vowed to vote to impeach Trump.

Upton tweeted “the Congress must hold President Trump to account and send a clear message that our country cannot and will not tolerate any effort by any President to impede the peaceful transfer of power from one President to the next. Thus, I will vote to impeach.”

Fred Upton said in his statement “today the President characterized his inflammatory rhetoric at last Wednesday’s rally as ‘totally appropriate,’ and he expressed no regrets for last week’s violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.”

“This sends exactly the wrong signal to those of us who support the very core of our democratic principles and took a solemn oath to the Constitution,” he continued “I would have preferred a bipartisan, formal censure rather than a drawn-out impeachment process. I fear this will now interfere with important legislative business and a new Biden Administration. But it is time to say: Enough is enough.”

“Thus, I will vote to impeach,” he concluded.

Liz Cheney (R-WY) House Republican Conference Chair also said earlier today she will vote to impeach President Trump.
