The Senate should defund the impeachment witch hunt until due process is provided

Oct. 25, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Senate not to fund the legislative branch until the House opens up its impeachment process to include due process, open hearings and minority rights:

“The Senate should reject all attempts to fund the legislative branch in the upcoming omnibus appropriations bill until the House of Representatives engages in due process, with full participation by the minority, in their impeachment witch hunt. While Congress has every right to pursue impeachment, the current ‘make up the rules as you go along’ secret star chamber being implemented by U.S. Rep. Schiff and coordinated with Speaker Pelosi violates the precepts of minority rights within our system, and the Senate is under no obligation to fund it. There can be no excuse for continuing to fund this sham, which denies the President of the United States basic constitutional rights that every citizen should expect to be honored.”
