Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On the Impeachment Campaign
Wednesday, October 30, 2019
On January 20, 2017, President Trump was sworn into office and became our nation’s 45th president.
Now, most presidents enjoy what political scientists refer to as a “honeymoon” period, where they are given a chance to push their agenda and partisan politics take a backseat.
But not this president. On his inauguration day, a Washington Post headline read: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.”
That campaign has been in full swing ever since. So let’s make no mistake: this process isn’t about concerns over alleged high crimes or misdemeanors.
This is about the Democratic Party, still bitter years later, trying to undo the 2016 election.
I ask unanimous consent that this Washington Post article from January 20, 2017 be entered into the Congressional Record.
