The following may be attributed to Representative Steve Stivers (R-OH), regarding his “nay” vote on H.Res. 24, Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors:

“President Trump’s actions were unacceptable and contributed to what will be remembered as one of the darkest days in our nation’s history.  Make no mistake, he must be held accountable. 

“The result was an attack on our constitutional republic; the peaceful transition of power is a cornerstone of our government.  But equally fundamental to the republic is due process, which this snap impeachment process in the House severely undermined by its lack of hearings, presentation of evidence, and committee action.  The precedent set by this process is frightening.

“The American people have spoken: in seven days, President-elect Biden will occupy the White House, and President Trump will be a private citizen, subject to the rule of law and the judgement of the judicial system.”
