Rep. Alma Adams Statement on Senate Impeachment Trial
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Alma S. Adams, Ph.D. (NC-12) released the following statement on the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald John Trump:
“I am gravely disappointed in the Senate’s vote not to convict Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection against the Capitol on January 6,” said Adams.
“I was there on that tragic day. Trump supporters in Trump hats with Trump flags stormed the Capitol and said President Trump sent them. The Capitol was attacked, the electoral vote certification was interrupted, the Senate chamber was breached, and people died as a result. The facts of the case could not be clearer; however, we learned today that Donald Trump has a stronger hold over Senate Republicans than the clarity of facts or the love of our Constitution and Country.”
“I applaud the 10 Republicans in the House and the 7 Republicans in the Senate who did not ignore the clear and convincing evidence against Donald Trump, and I could not be prouder of my colleagues, the House impeachment managers, for their strong defense of our Constitution and American democracy against Donald Trump and his mob of insurrectionists.”
