Congressman Barr Issues A Statement

U.S. Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) released a statement after voting in opposition to the impeachment of President Donald Trump:“The President’s rhetoric on January 6th prior to the violence and mayhem at the U.S. Capitol building was regrettable and irresponsible. It was inappropriate for the President to discourage the Vice President from discharging his duties under the Constitution and the Electoral Count Act. “That said, I disagree with my colleagues who claim that the President’s words constituted “incitement to insurrection,” which is what House Democrats specifically allege in their article of impeachment. Based on the facts, I do not believe the President’s words, while unfortunate, satisfy the legal definition of incitement.
