WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following President Donald J. Trump’s acquittal in the United States Senate, U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-6) lauded President Trump’s continued focus on achieving results for the American people.

“Just as we knew from the beginning, House Democrats’ impeachment process was purely partisan and an embarrassment to our country. More importantly, their focus on this process served as a distraction from the work the American people sent us to Washington, D.C., to accomplish,” Rep. Rose stated.

“I applaud President Trump for his relentless optimism and work for the American people during the past three years as House Democrats played political games,” Rose continued. “Once the Articles of Impeachment were transmitted to the Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fairly but efficiently handled the matter, and now the Senate will be able to return to the work of the people. I commend my Republican colleagues in the Senate, and I look forward to advancing President Trump’s America First vision.”

The Articles of Impeachment were considered in the House of Representatives on December 18, 2019 and Rep. Rose voted against both. The Senate voted to acquit President Trump today, February 5, 2020, on both accounts.

U.S. Representative John Rose represents Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District and resides in Cookeville with his wife, Chelsea, and their son, Guy. The Sixth District includes Cannon, Clay, Coffee, Cumberland, DeKalb, Fentress, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Robertson, Smith, Sumner, Trousdale, White, and Wilson counties as well as portions of Cheatham and Van Buren counties.
