FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) – Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron joined with 20 other Republican attorneys general Wednesday in saying the Senate should reject the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
The first “Friend to the Senate” letter was sent out by the Republican Attorneys General Association. The 14-page letter said House Democrats are motivated by politics and are trying to nullify the “votes of millions of citizens” in the 2016 election.
“Kentuckians deserve to know the votes they cast in the last election will be respected and not overridden by a partisan impeachment process,” Cameron said in a statement. “Our Constitution prescribes a process for impeachment that is free from politics and used only in extraordinary circumstances. The process followed in the House of Representatives produced Articles of Impeachment with significant legal and factual deficiencies. The letter sent today to the Senate outlines the intrinsic risks that such blatantly partisan articles pose both to the institution of the Presidency and our separation of powers structure.”
Adam Piper, the group’s executive director, said in a new release that the filing “demonstrates their commitment to preserving the vitality of the presidency, legacy of our founding fathers, and sacredness of the impeachment process.”
