Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ11) released the following statement after the United States Senate failed to convict Donald Trump for incitement of insurrection:

“The House Impeachment Managers have built a strong case, brick by brick, that leaves no doubt that Donald Trump is guilty of inciting insurrection against the United States government.

“Donald Trump lied for months about the election, called his supporters to Washington specifically on January 6 to derail certification of the election, and further incited those supporters at his rally. As the violence escalated and his supporters brutalized Capitol Police officers, ransacked the United States Capitol building, and hunted Vice President Pence, Donald Trump did nothing to stop it. Rather, he further inflamed his supporters.

“Donald Trump incited insurrection and was impeached for that incitement with bipartisan support in the House of Representatives. I commend Republican Senators who voted in favor of conviction for their strength.

“The Senators who refused to stand up for our country and uphold their constitutional oath have set a dangerous precedent. They have twisted our Constitution, the intentions of our founders, and the very notion of holding elected officials accountable for high crimes and misdemeanors. Whether for their own political ends or other reasons, it is an act of cowardice at a time that demands courage.

“Luckily, our republic is stronger than the lies of the former president. Our citizens will rise above the cowardice displayed by some in office. And I will continue to work for truth, justice, and to protect and defend our Constitution and our country.”
