                          SHAMEFUL IMPEACHMENT

  (Mr. MOONEY of West Virginia asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. MOONEY of West Virginia. Mr. Speaker, for the first time in 
recent American history, the President of the United States was 
impeached with only Members of one party voting for it. This has been a 
shameful, partisan exercise in the U.S. House from start to finish.
  Speaker Nancy Pelosi's actions yesterday contradicted her previous 
statements that impeachment should only happen if it has bipartisan 
support.
  Since the moment President Trump was sworn into office, Democrats in 
Congress had made it their mission to remove him and overturn the 
results of the 2016 election. On January 20, 2017, The Washington Post 
wrote that the effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is 
underway--and indeed it was.

people and folks across West Virginia have been able to witness this 
unjust and unfair process.
  Despite a rigged investigation and process, Democrats could still not 
find any real evidence of an actual crime. I will continue to stand 
with President Donald Trump as he fights back against this baseless 
impeachment.
  I look forward to a fair trial in the U.S. Senate.
