WASHINGTON, DC – In a party line vote of 9 to 4, the House Rules Committee voted to advance Articles of Impeachment. At today’s hearing, Representative Rob Woodall spoke out against the bitter partisanship which has consumed Capitol Hill. In his closing remarks, Rep. Woodall called for civility and understanding among his Republican and Democratic colleagues.

“We're talking today about reversing America’s last election. Candidly, I have every bit as much concern about the time that we will reverse the next election or the election after that,” said Congressman Woodall. “It is not more divided in this Congress today than it was in 1998 when folks found a process on which they could work together. As much as we cared about the presidency then, we cared more about the Constitution later. We found a way to move forward in a bipartisan way then, and moving forward in a partisan way today is going to have serious repercussions. I truly believe America will judge us harshly because of the process that has come forward.”
