Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. The Articles of Impeachment, accused the President of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and will now move to the U.S. Senate for trial. Three Democrats joined House Republicans in opposing the charge that the President obstructed Congress, and two Democrats voted against the article that stated that the President abused his office.

"Impeaching a duly elected president is a serious undertaking that demands fairness, careful examination, and bipartisan support," said Congressman Woodall. "The majority party in the House violated these principles and made a mockery of our Constitutional responsibility to conduct oversight. In the end, the only thing bipartisan about impeachment was the opposition to it. I am confident that the Senate will treat this process with more sincerity and bring conclusion to this saga. Perhaps, then, we can return to our promised work on behalf of the American people."
