Kelly Opposes Impeachment Vote

WASHINGTON - Today, U.S. Representative Trent Kelly (R-Miss) voted against H. Res. 755, Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Following hours of debate in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Articles of Impeachment were passed by a partisan vote with zero evidence or facts.

"This is the first time in history that impeachment proceedings have been completely partisan, shrouded in secrecy, and based on he-said-she-said accusations," Rep. Kelly said. "As a former prosecutor, I find it insulting that my colleagues have built a case on second hand accounts, editorials, and opinions. The House has wasted time and tax dollars on an unfounded witch hunt instead of legislating on behalf of our country."

The U.S. Senate is now obligated to continue the impeachment proceedings. A conviction will require a two-thirds majority vote.

Congressman Trent Kelly represents Mississippi's First Congressional District. He serves on the House Armed Services Committee, serving as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Military Personnel. Congressman Kelly also serves on the House Committee on Agriculture. This is his third term.
