RELEASE: Harris County Democratic Party Statement on U.S. Senate Acquittal of Former Pres. Donald Trump in 2nd Impeachment Trial:
HCDP issued the following statement after the vote:
“Trump’s acquittal is a clear message that Republicans cannot separate their political ambition from what is right for our country. Even when faced with irrefutable evidence and after their own lives were threatened, they still did not choose Truth-Instead they chose Trump.
“We must never forget those who voted to protect the criminal actions of former president Trump and those whose actions were also culpable in the Capitol Insurrection. We will not rest until there is accountability for the actions of our Texas Senators Cruz and Cornyn, whose loyalty today was with Trump and not with the good people of Texas or for America.
“It’s up to us to ensure a stable democracy for our future through mobilization and through our work with other Democrats across the nation. Together we can eliminate the Republican corruption we are seeing today. Together we can continue to win back the soul of our country!
