Hartzler Statement on Speaker Pelosi’s Efforts to Remove the President from Office

January 12, 2021
Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) made the following statement regarding Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s intent to bring legislation to the floor calling on the Vice President to invoke the 25th amendment followed by articles of impeachment to remove the President:   
 
“The forced removal of the President with less than a week remaining in his term is a political theater that the nation can do without. America is struggling to come together following the riots and violence at the Capitol, and this friction will grow worse because of Speaker Pelosi’s political vendetta. The nation should not be subjected to more animosity simply because Speaker Pelosi seeks to settle a score. I will not be supporting her efforts.

Next week, Joe Biden will be sworn in as President of the United States. We should be focused on bringing our nation together, not tearing it further apart. The Speaker’s actions are self-serving and do nothing other than provide a great disservice to our country.”
