MADISON – Wisconsin’s Legislature could soon vote to oppose the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
State Sen. Tom Tiffany, R-Minocqua, introduced a resolution on Tuesday afternoon, urging members of the Legislature to “oppose the passing and holding” of the articles against Trump, according to a news release.
Tiffany, who is also running for Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, said in the release that the House of Representatives has wasted too much time on the matter, and he wants to see more focus on issues that impact residents of Wisconsin.
“It’s time for Wisconsin to stand up and say we as a state want Congress to focus on issues that matter, like defending our borders to combat drug and human trafficking, maintaining American military superiority, ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent wisely and protecting our constitutional rights,” he said in the release. “A majority of Americans oppose impeachment and think enough time has been wasted. It’s time for the impeachment distraction against President Trump to end.”
The resolution calls out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and congressional Democrats, for focusing their time on the articles of impeachment “despite no evidence of wrongdoing,” and spells out support for Wisconsin Reps. Jim Sensenbrenner, Glenn Grothman, Mike Gallagher and Bryan Stiel, who all voted against the articles.
