Washington, D.C. – Today, Senator Marsha Blackburn gave the following statement after the United States Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress:
“Over the past three weeks, the Senate considered arguments for and against two articles of impeachment sent over by the House of Representatives: one, charging the President with abuse of power for asking Ukraine to assist him in investigating Hunter Biden’s work for Burisma, and a second, charging him with obstruction of Congress.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today on the Senate floor discussed his decision to vote for acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial. Below is a partial transcript of his remarks.
“I worked with other senators to make sure that we had the right to ask for more documents and witnesses,” Senator Alexander said. “But there was no need for more evidence to prove something that I believe had already been proven and that did not meet the United States Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense.”

Lamar Alexander Statement on Impeachment Witness Vote
Washington, D.C. – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on his vote regarding additional evidence in the impeachment proceedings:
“I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses, but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the United States Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense.
“There is no need for more evidence to prove that the president asked Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter; he said this on television on October 3rd, 2019, and during his July 25th, 2019, telephone call with the president of Ukraine.”
Washington, D.C. – House Democrats have tried almost everything by this point. They’ve left no stone unturned in their effort to, as Impeachment Manager Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) put it, “send that charlatan in the White House back to the golden throne he came from.”
That promise came during his supposedly impartial impeachment probe, by the way.
Washington, D.C. – Friday, January 24th, 2020, marked the end of House Democrats’ 3-day presentation of their historically weak Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump. Saturday, the President had chance to respond to Democrats’ dishonest case.
Washington, D.C. – Dear Madam Speaker:
I write to express my strongest and most powerful protest against the partisan impeachment crusade being pursued by the Democrats in the House of Representatives.
This impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history.
Washington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a conferee for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020, on Wednesday, December 12th, 2019, applauded the completion of the defense spending conference report. Senator Blackburn advocated for several provisions critical to groups in Tennessee that are included in the NDAA.
“This NDAA funds our key priorities of implementing the National Defense Strategy, rebuilding the military, and taking care of our troops and their families. Tennessee is proud to be home to multiple military bases,” Senator Blackburn said.
Washington, D.C. – “So the United States has ‘the world’s highest rate of children in detention.’ Is this worth reporting? Maybe, maybe not. Nevertheless, Agence France-Presse, or AFP, and Reuters did report it, attributing the information to a ‘United Nations study’ on migrant children detained at the US-Mexico border,” Kyle Smith writes for the New York Post.
“Then the two agencies retracted the story.” Why? “Sheepishly, the two news organizations explained that, you see, the UN data was from 2015.”
