Timmons Praises Acquittal of President Donald J. Trump

Congressman William Timmons released the following statement following the acquittal of President Donald Trump: 

“Today, the Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump of all charges brought against him, and all I can say is: it is about time. Democrats have been focused on undoing the 2016 election and the will of the people since they took control of the House last January. I am pleased that the Senate saw through the political theater and voted to acquit the President.

“I have every confidence that we can tackle the biggest issues facing our country, but as long as the impeachment saga dragged on, this was impossible. The President showed in his State of the Union Address last night that he is more than willing to partner with anyone who wants to better our country, regardless of their political party. It is time to build on the bipartisan success we have already had with Senator Scott’s Opportunity Zones and with Criminal Justice Reform. This is the blueprint. This is the way forward.

“We will never be able to solve our country’s biggest problems without bipartisan collaboration. With impeachment behind us, it is time to move forward and come together to serve the American people.”
