WASHINTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement after he and a majority of senators voted to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment:
“… I joined a majority of senators in voting to acquit President Trump. The Constitution sets a very high bar for impeachment and removal of a sitting president.
“While some of President Trump’s actions were inappropriate, they did not come close to meeting the very high bar required to justify overturning the last election, removing him from office, and kicking him off the ballot in an election that has already begun.
“In November, the American people will decide for themselves whether President Trump should stay in office. In our democratic system, that’s the way it should be.
“It is my hope that Congress can now move past this extremely partisan and divisive episode and get back to working on issues that will strengthen our economy and make our communities safer.”
