Womack Statement on Impeachment Vote
Washington, January 13, 2021
Washington, DC—January 13, 2021….Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the below statement regarding today’s impeachment vote in the House. He voted against the proceedings and is calling for Congress to come together, prioritize unity, and tackle the immediate challenges before us:
“There is no defending the actions of rioters and the leaders who fanned the flames of insurrection. It was a national disgrace. But no option currently presented before the House will remove the President before his term ends on January 20th. The impeachment vote can therefore only serve to inflame tensions and test an already fragile nation. My position isn’t to appease any party, ideology, or person – it is to start the process of putting our country back together. Congress should be using this moment to solve for the pressing issues of America – defeating the coronavirus, enhancing vaccine distribution, ensuring an orderly transition of government, fighting socialist policies, reinvigorating our economy, and healing the deep divisions we face. Let us not be distracted.”
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
