The House was divided along party lines after approving the resolution that outlines the rules of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Here is what some of Mississippi’s Congressional Delegation had to say and where they stand on the issue.
Congressman Michael Guest
Congressman Michael Guest (MS-03) voted against the resolution proposed by the Democrats to establish the House of Representatives’ impeachment process. The House Resolution passed the House on a 232-196 vote.
Congressman Guest reconfirmed his stance against the impeachment inquiry. “It is apparent by the process the Democrats have proposed that they have no interest in transparency, fairness, or due process. Democrats have been focused on one goal since the day President Trump was elected – to impeach a president the American people democratically elected, regardless of the consequences. In their mission, the Democrats have ignored the crisis on our border, they have neglected important trade agreements, and they have forgotten about our aging infrastructure. I urge my colleagues across the aisle to drop this political sham that is creating a schism across our nation so that we can address the issues that will create a brighter future for all Americans regardless of their political beliefs.”
Congressman Steven Palazzo
Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) voted against H. Res. 660, a bill that would authorize an impeachment inquiry within the House of Representatives. The resolution passed the House by 232-196. Palazzo released the following statement:
“The House has many other things we can be focused on besides a bogus impeachment inquiry. We’ve yet to pass appropriations for the upcoming fiscal year, the annual defense authorization act, or the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Instead, Democrats waste precious time to further their Liberal agenda of impeaching a successful president they disagree with. I do not support the illegitimate investigations and will continue standing against the bombastic attacks made against our duly elected President.”
