Press Release
“Partisan effort” is unnecessary

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany (WI-07) issued the following statement in response to proposed efforts to “re-impeach” and remove the president:

"Speaker Pelosi’s decision to move forward with another partisan effort to remove the president from office with just days remaining in his term is unnecessary." 

"The House heard, debated and rejected constitutionally authorized challenges to the electoral college last week – just as it did after the 2000, 2004 and 2016 elections when Democratic lawmakers lodged objections using the same framework in response to the concerns of their constituents. That is how our system of government works. Inflaming an already volatile situation, as this rushed and irresponsible ‘re-impeachment’ push promises to, is exactly the wrong approach." 

"The electoral count has been certified, Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States, and I plan to attend his inauguration. It is now time for all of us – Democrats and Republicans alike – to turn down the temperature, condemn criminal violence and intimidation on all sides, stop the political score-settling, and move on with the business of the American people."
