Herrera-Beutler Votes For Impeachmet; Bentz Votes No

Washington Third District Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler said on the House floor during Wednesday’s vote on the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump  that fear is our enemy, but the truth is not.  Herrera Beutler, one of ten Republicans to vote for impeachment, said she was “choosing truth.  It’s the only way to defeat fear.”  Washington Fourth District Congressman Dan Newhouse also voted yes as the House voted to impeach Trump by a count of 232-197.  The remainder of the Northwest delegation voted along party lines, with Democrats for impeachment and Republicans, including Oregon Second District Congressman Cliff Bentz, against.  In a written statement issued after the vote, Bentz said he continued to “share the emotions many are feeling in the aftermath of the unprecedented and unacceptable violence this past week.  But the current rush-to-judgement impeachment proceedings have only succeeded in dividing our country even more.”
