Washington, D.C. – Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the Republicans’ report of evidence in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry:

“House Democrats have been trying to undo the results of President Trump’s historic election since before he was sworn in. Today’s report clearly shows how weak the Democrats’ case for impeachment is and that they have failed to find a single, legitimate reason to impeach the president. After countless hours of wasted time, Chairman Schiff has only succeeded in exposing this sham for what it is: a political hit job.

“Instead, Democrats have relied on smears, hearsay, and presumption to build their false narrative. Their claims have been discredited, and the American people can see right through their guilty-until-proven-innocent justice system.

“I’d like to thank the Republican Members and staff of the House Intelligence, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs Committees for their hard work and commitment to the truth. For the sake of the American people, House Democrats should stop this ridiculous impeachment and instead join Republicans in addressing the major issues facing our country.”
