Democrats must not have the votes for impeachment

Nov. 25, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s statement on CNN that “I want to discuss this with my constituents and colleagues before I make a final judgment on this…”:

“Adam Schiff attempted to walk back his demand for impeachment this weekend on CNN in one of the most transparent political act of capitulations in recent memory. Schiff and his Democratic cohorts have been attempting to impeach and delegitimize President Trump since before the 2016 election. And for the past three years have sought to undermine President Trump at every turn. The damage Schiff has done to our nation is incalculable through his abuse of the very serious impeachment clause in the United States Constitution. Now there is talk in Washington of pushing for a meaningless censure of the President in the House of Representatives while putting President Trump on double not-so-secret probation for a future impeachment.

“Three things are clear. Democrats don’t have the votes for impeachment in the House. The American public is telling Speaker Pelosi to start passing legislation like the proposed USMCA, budget cuts and border security. And, the administrative state’s coup against the President has been rejected once exposed to open hearings. It’s time for Congress to stop their efforts to undo the results of the 2016 election and focus on the business of the American people.”
