Congressman Cliff Bentz Votes Against Impeachment

January 13, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Cliff Bentz of Oregon’s Second Congressional District voted against the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump in the United States House of Representatives.  In a statement, Bentz cited the importance of unifying the nation around a peaceful transition to the Biden Administration.

“I continue 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.  I voted against impeachment because our focus should be on unifying our nation, ensuring a peaceful transition to the Biden Administration, and working to address the pressing issues facing our country and Oregon's Second Congressional District.  I came to Congress to stand up for rural communities across my district by addressing the terrible damage caused by recent wildfires, reforming the laws that govern our water rights, and ensuring we help those hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
