North Carolina Republicans to Censure Senator Burr For Voting to Convict Trump in Unconstitutional Impeachment Trial

Richard Burr

The North Carolina Republican Party will vote Monday night on whether to censure Senator Richard Burr after he voted to convict Trump.

7 Republican Senators voted with Democrats to convict Trump.

North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr is one of seven Republicans who voted “guilty” to convict President Donald Trump on Saturday — and by his own admission, he violated the US Constitution in doing so.

Burr, who split from Republican voters and sided with the Democrats, released a statement following his vote that contained an admission that he believes he violated the Constitution.

“When this process started, I believed that it was unconstitutional to impeach a president who was no longer in office. I still believe that to be the case. However, the Senate is an institution based on precedent, and given that the majority in the Senate voted to proceed with this trial, the question of constitutionality is now established precedent,” Burr’s statement said.

The Chairman of the North Carolina GOP condemned Burr in a statement Saturday evening.

Censuring and condemning Burr doesn’t mean much because he’s on his way out of the Senate.

Richard Burr doesn’t care about the US Constitution and he isn’t worried about upsetting North Carolina voters because he is retiring and will not seek reelection when his term expires next year.
