WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Braun released the following statement regarding the U.S. Senate’s vote regarding the constitutionality of former President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment trial.  

“As I have stated earlier, the Framers of the Constitution never intended for the Senate to hold a trial to remove a former President from an office he no longer holds, which is why I voted against the constitutionality of former President Trump’s impeachment trial.  President Joe Biden and Senate Democrats would be wise to unite the country by working with Republicans to safely reopen our economy and defeat the virus, instead of dividing us through this impeachment trial.”
