WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) released the following statement regarding his vote against the House Resolution calling on Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, which would declare President Trump unable to finish his term as our 45th President of the United States.
“Next week, President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris will be sworn into office and Congress should be making every effort to unify this nation, rather than taking divisive votes. I continue to adamantly condemn the deadly riot at the Capitol last week, as every American should. Moving forward, may those we lost serve as a stark reminder of the desperate need for a united and peaceful country.
“As House Democrats push to remove President Trump from office, even in these final days of his administration, I have full faith and confidence in my close friend Vice President Mike Pence regarding the 25th Amendment.”
