Marsha Blackburn: Senate can only review, not expand Impeachment
“It is not our job to expand the impeachment,” Senate Judiciary Committee Member Sen. Marsha Blackburn said on “Fox & Friends”. “It is our job to review what they have sent forward, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. We’re going to do it in an expedient matter. We’re going to be fair to the president, and to the process, and we’re going to get this behind us.”
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Blackburn said that her constituents in Tennessee and voters across the nation are “sick and tired” of impeachment.
“We will pass a resolution of how we’re going to proceed,” Blackburn stated. “The impeaching process took place in the House. If they wanted to call these witnesses they could have called them.”
“They have taken one of the most serious processes in the Constitution and they are politicizing it, and they have had this as a partisan political impeachment from day one,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn concluded.
