44 Senate Republicans agree House process unfair, lacks due process. Where’s Romney and friends?

Oct. 24, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Senate to sponsor and pass a resolution condemning the House impeachment process as lacking due process:

“Nine Republican Senators remain silent through their failure to cosponsor Sen. Lindsey Graham’s resolution condemning the House impeachment process as lacking due process. It may be simple staff oversight. However there is no excuse for anyone to accept a process that denies fairness to the President of the United States. It is time for Senators Dan Sullivan, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Michael Enzi, Cory Gardner, Lamar Alexander, Rob Portman, Johnny Isakson and Mitt Romney to at least agree that House Republicans should be afforded the ability to call witnesses and the transparency of open hearings. There are some who say that no one is above the law. The House proceedings are treating the President of the United States as if he is below the law, and that should be unacceptable to everyone. It’s time for Sen. Romney and those who haven’t signed on to join Sen. Graham and 43 other Republican colleagues in condemning an abjectly unfair process that sets a dangerous precedent.”

Correction: At the time of this statement, Senator Burr had signed onto the resolution and Senator Sullivan had not. The statement has been updated to reflect this.
