Washington – Wyoming Congresswoman and House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement after the Senate voted today to acquit President Trump of the House Democrats’ articles of impeachment:

“Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, did the right thing in voting to acquit President Trump of the articles of impeachment. 

“The country will hold the Democrats accountable for abandoning the Constitution and abdicating their oaths of office. They proved that they cannot be trusted to put their responsibility to the country before their political self-interest, and that is something the American people will long remember.”
