Shelby Statement on Conclusion of Impeachment Trial

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released the following statement regarding the acquittal of former President Donald Trump:

“The Constitution speaks of removing a sitting president, not a private citizen.  I recently voted to dismiss this case based on its questionable constitutionality.  The Framers were clear in limiting impeachment to the President, Vice President, and civil officers of the United States.  That is why today, I voted to acquit.”
