Press Release

WASHINGTON – Ahead of the House of Representatives vote on articles of impeachment against President Trump, Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02) released the following statement:

“I will vote no on the articles of impeachment brought against President Trump. The way this impeachment played out was deeply troubling to me, based on hearsay claims from partisan witnesses that were made behind closed doors in the basement of the Capitol. This was an irresponsible political stunt that only deepened the divide in our country. Congress has wasted time, money, and resources that would have been better used on addressing serious issues facing Americans. I am disappointed Congress was taken down this path and I will do everything in my power to make sure Congress gets back on track.”
