Graham-McConnell resolution in favor of due process in impeachment up to 50 supporters. Where are Manchin, Sinema and Jones?

Oct. 25, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging every Senator, whether Republican or Democrat, to support S. Res. 378, calling for the House to “consistent with long-standing practice and precedent, prior to proceeding any further with its impeachment investigation into President Donald J. Trump, vote to open a formal impeachment inquiry and provide President Trump with fundamental constitutional protections”:

Half the Senate is now on record condemning the circus-like witch hunt being conducted against President Trump in the House of Representatives. With only three Republicans not yet signing onto the Graham resolution, what is surprising is that Sens. Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema and Doug Jones have not raced their GOP colleagues to Graham’s desk to be included. The people of West Virginia, Arizona and Alabama need to contact their Senate delegations and make it clear that they expect their Democrat elected Senators to join their Republican colleagues and stand up for due process rights. Fair play is not a partisan principle, and it’s time for Manchin, Sinema and Jones to recognize.”
