Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement after the House voted to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

Congressman Byrne said: “After a month of playing games, Speaker Pelosi has finally given up and sent her impeachment articles to the Senate.  I am proud to have fought against this sham every step of the way, and I hope that the Senate will move quickly to dismiss these articles.  It’s time to finally address the issues the American people care about that Democrats have neglected while pushing their partisan scheme to overturn the will of the voters in the 2016 election.”

Pelosi agreed to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate after Byrne introduced a resolution of censure against her for abusing her power by holding the articles of impeachment.
