Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement regarding the witness vote in the impeachment trial of President Trump:
"The purpose of a witness is to shed light on an important fact that could resolve a disputed issue and help determine the final outcome of the case. In my view, the House has brought forward articles of impeachment that do not justify removing President Trump from office, nullifying the results of the 2016 election, and denying Americans the right to vote for him in the next election. As a result, additional witnesses beyond the 17 who testified in the House proceedings, are not necessary."
