Twenty-nine Republicans, one of whom is Rep. Elise Stefanik the House GOP Conference Chairwoman, support a resolution to “expunge” the second impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The effort is being led by Rep. Markwayne Mullin who also introduced a resolution to expunge Trump’s first impeachment.
House GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik and roughly 28 other chamber Republicans are backing a resolution to “expunge” the second impeachment of former President Trump.
The effort, first reported by the Daily Beast, is being led by Oklahoma Rep. Markwayne Mullin.
It would apply to Trump’s 2021 impeachment, which occurred in the wake of the Jan. 6, Capitol riot.
Mullin previously introduced a similar measure on Trump’s first impeachment, which centered on the accusation that Trump was withholding military aid from Ukraine in exchange for politically salient favors.
Rep. Mullin released a statement regarding the impeachment saying “it was rooted in personal politics.”
“Democrats used their second impeachment resolution to once again weaponize one of the most grave and consequential powers of the House,” Mullin said in a statement. “This was never about the Constitution; it was rooted in personal politics.”
Trump responded to the news on Truth Social:
“Thank you, Elise, and Markwayne—was a total Hoax! “
