For Immediate Release
Raleigh, NC - North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley released the following statement in response to the impeachment vote in the House of Representatives:
“The actions of the violent mob that stormed the US Capitol were completely unjustified and unacceptable and the North Carolina Republican Party condemns them unequivocally. There is no rationale to excuse this assault on the foundations of our Democracy.
It is unfortunate that rather than acting on their calls for unity and healing, Congressional Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi and cheered on by President-Elect Joe Biden have voted on a rushed and ill-considered impeachment resolution.
At a time when an overwhelming majority of Americans want to see a peaceful transition of power and a lowering of political rhetoric in Washington, it is completely irresponsible for the Speaker to move forward with impeachment a mere eight days before the end of President Trump's term.”
