WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) on February 13 released the following statement after the Senate voted to acquit former President Trump on all charges relating to his role in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol building:
“Everyone agrees that the individuals who attacked the Capitol complex on January 6 should be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. However, this unconstitutional impeachment trial, a second attempt to destroy President Trump, is nothing more than a political charade. It's time for Congress to stop wasting its time and taxpayer money. Let us move forward to address truly pressing issues like expanding access to the vaccine, restoring our economy and American jobs, reopening schools and bringing our supply chain home. There's too much work to be done to spend another day on this partisan sham."
