Rep. Bradley Byrne weighs-in on President's impeachment
Republican Alabama Congressman, Bradley Byrne, is weighing in on President Trump's impeachment.
Lawmakers continue to face-off on what the president's senate trial will look like early next year, but Congressman Byrne is doubling down on a sentiment shared by many republicans, saying the entire impeachment process has been a waste of everyone's time.
He says it will be voters in November who will decide if president trump remains Commander-in-Chief, not his impeachment.
Meanwhile, Democrats are standing by House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi's decision to hold on to the Articles of Impeachment, a move the president has vehemently opposed.
Rep. Byrne said that is proof Democrats do not have a case.
"It was clear from the beginning they weren't going to get the votes to from the Senate to remove him from office” said Rep. Byrne.
“So, really they're just trying to hurt him politically in advance of this presidential election this fall, but the American people see through all of that. The American people understand what's going on here. So, that's what I meant when I said the President was actually helped by this, as painful as it is. I think people are saying, 'Well if that's what they're trying to do to him, there's something wrong with them and not with him,'" Rep. Byrne said.
The Senate trial cannot begin until the Articles of Impeachment are delivered to the Senate.
