WASHINGTON, D.C.– Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) released the following statement today after voting against H. Res. 798, a resolution appointing and authorizing managers for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the United States Senate:

“Essentially, this vote sends seven unprepared pro-impeachment folks over to the Senate in an attempt to make a solid case against the President,” said Congressman Amodei, “which probably explains why there have been additional efforts made by House Democrats over the last month to try and strengthen their argument. No disrespect to the managers selected by Speaker Pelosi today, but based on the case made over here, she’s sending these Members into the lion’s den.”
