Washington, D.C.- Today, Congressman Mooney (WV-02) released a statement following the United States Senate’s vote to acquit President Donald J. Trump.

“After months of investigation and a full trial, the United States Senate has voted to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment irresponsibly presented by the U.S. House.

I have strongly opposed this impeachment effort from the start. I believe that this process was partisan, unfair to the President, and motivated by the disdain Democrats in Congress hold for President Trump.

Now that the trial has finally concluded, I believe it is time to get back to work on the issues that matter to all Americans. In his State of the Union address last night, President Trump indicated support for lowering prescription drug prices, maintaining our strong economy, and expanding access to broadband internet for rural America. These important issues have potential for bipartisan solutions. I call upon Speaker Pelosi to finally put impeachment aside and work with President Trump on some of these bipartisan ideas for the betterment of the country.” said Congressman Mooney.
