WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 13, 2021) – Today, U.S. Representative Tim Burchett (TN-02) voted against an article of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of inciting an insurrection. Rep. Burchett released the following statement:

Every single thug who rioted last week acted of their own free will and is personally responsible for their crimes. They were not forced by President Trump to do what they did, and the President should have called his supporters off long before he did. Rushing impeachment through the House won’t fix the problems that led to the assault on the Capitol Building.”
