(Washington, DC) ––Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1) issued the following statement today after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach the President of the United States.

“I have been concerned since the beginning that this impeachment process has been driven by a predetermined verdict of guilty.  It’s unfair.  Now, any future president, Democrat or Republican, will have to worry that impeachment will be used as a blunt force political instrument,” Fortenberry said.

“The House has had its cathartic moment.  Maybe tomorrow, we can get back to work and pass a good, fair trade agreement with Canada and Mexico,” Fortenberry added.
