Ortt calls impeachment ‘sham attack on our president’
State Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, who is running for the 27thCongressional District, has issued a statement following the House vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
“Today’s vote by House Democrats to impeach President Trump marks the sad completion of a process over three years in the making,” Ortt said. “Since election night in 2016, Democrats have set out to overturn the will of the American people and remove our democratically elected president. The use of impeachment as a partisan campaign tool by Speaker Pelosi, Congressman Nadler, and Congressman Schiff is an embarrassment and should sit uneasily with any American. I fear for the precedent that this sham impeachment will have on American democracy going forward.
“Throughout this process, the residents of New York’s 27th Congressional District have been without a voice in Washington to call out this sham attack on our president. It is time for Gov. Cuomo to end the political games and to call a special election so our community can finally have someone in Congress fighting for our conservative values and President Trump’s agenda.”
