Gov. Ricketts Condemns Impeachment Vote as “Partisan Power Play” by House Democrats

 

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following a vote by House Democrats to impeach President Donald J. Trump.  A bipartisan coalition of representatives voted to oppose impeachment. 

 

“Tonight’s vote revealed that Nancy Pelosi’s Articles of Impeachment were simply a partisan power play by House Democrats,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “They have wasted countless hours and millions of taxpayer dollars trying to remove a duly elected president at the expense of the priorities of the American people.  I expect President Trump to be fully exonerated by the Senate.”
