Congressman Greg Murphy, M.D. (NC-03) issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to dismiss both Articles of Impeachment.
"After more than four long, divisive and counter-productive months, impeachment is finally over and the president has been rightfully acquitted-the actions of the president did not warrant the charges. Congress has been stuck at a standstill for too long. Having been sworn into Congress only a week prior to the beginning of the impeachment inquiry, I am thankful this storm has passed and I can finally begin the legislative work eastern North Carolinians elected me to do,"
"Congress could and should have been working on issues like healthcare, prescription drugs, border security and more instead of this tiresome and illegitimate impeachment. Hopefully, we can finally get back to tending to the business of the people. Unfortunately, I doubt that will be the case after the petty and partisan theatrics displayed by Speaker Pelosi at the State of the Union address last night. Bipartisan efforts that would benefit the American people will likely be forgone due to the Speaker's disdain for the president and her fear of giving him legislative victories. America deserves better."
