Lucas: Our Nation Deserves Better Than a Partisan Impeachment

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Donald J. Trump:

“Today is a sad day for us all- the American people and the institution that is the U.S. House of Representatives. For the third time in history, the House of Representatives has impeached a sitting president.

As I have said before, the strength of our democracy comes from the House’s ability to legislate on behalf of the American people. For more than 200 hundred years the U.S. House of Representatives has stood as a testament to that notion and has served the needs of a great nation. Regrettably today, those needs have been put aside in favor of partisan politics.

For months, Americans have witnessed impeachment proceedings unlike any other in modern history. From the very beginning, House Democrats blatantly disregarded historical and institutional practices to instead partake in a flawed, partisan probe. There’s only one thing that’s been made clear by today’s partisan impeachment vote: this unjust impeachment is a disservice to the American people.

Our institution deserves better than this. Oklahomans deserve better than this. And our nation deserves better than this.
