ICYMI: Senator Hawley’s Floor Speech on His Resolution to Dismiss Articles of Impeachment for Failure to Prosecute

Senator Hawley gave a speech on the Senate floor where he laid out the case for his resolution to allow for the dismissal of articles of impeachment against President Trump for failure to prosecute. “In the real world, when a prosecutor brings a case but refuses to try it, the court has the ability -- and the defendant has the right, the constitutional right, I might add -- to have those articles, those indictments, those charges dismissed. That is precisely the action that I am proposing today....

Sen. Hawley Introduces Resolution to Allow Dismissal of ‘Bogus Impeachment’ Against President Trump

"Speaker Pelosi started this bogus impeachment by claiming President Trump was an urgent ‘threat to democracy’ who had to be removed now. But after a bipartisan vote against the articles in the House, and with the public opposed to the Democrats’ partisan games, Pelosi has changed her tune. Now she wants to prevent a Senate trial, perhaps indefinitely. But the Constitution gives the Senate sole power to adjudicate articles of impeachment, not the House. If Speaker Pelosi is afraid to try her...

Senator Hawley Statement on House Impeachment Vote

"With last night’s vote, House Democrats have earned a place in history for the worst abuse of the impeachment process ever perpetrated. They have ignored due process, ignored House procedures, and ignored the evidence on their way to adopting the first impeachment articles against a president in history that do not even bother to allege a crime. With a bipartisan coalition voting against impeachment, now they are threatening not to hold a trial. They have harmed the country and disgraced both...

Sen. Hawley: Democrats Bought A Federal Investigation of The Trump Campaign

Senator Hawley said, “Essentially the Democrat Party bought themselves an FBI investigation. The Democrats went out and paid for this fake dossier, they fed it to the FBI, and the FBI used it to get surveillance of the Trump campaign during a presidential election. This has never happened before in American history, and the Horowitz report, the IG report, is really damning. It shows that the FBI bought this hook, line, and sinker.”
