WASHINGTON – Senator Mike Braun released the following statement following his vote in the second Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

“The riot on January 6th was horrific and should be universally condemned, and while I listened to both President Trump’s defense and the House Managers’ arguments, I believe it is unconstitutional to hold a trial to remove a former President from an office he no longer holds and feel a vote to convict would have deep negative implications for the First Amendment and due process.” – Senator Mike Braun
