Washington, D.C.Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05) offered the following statement after the United States Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump on charges brought forth by a partisan-fueled impeachment resolution:

Democrats have wanted to impeach President Trump since January 20, 2017. They got to scratch that itch and eventually presented articles of impeachment to the United States Senate. Today, the Senate concluded that the allegations against the President did not meet the high bar of removal from office. Now, we can tear the articles of impeachment in half and pitch them into the dustbin of history.”
