United States Senator Patrick Joseph Toomey, Jr.
February 25, 2021
WHEREAS, the Adams County Republican Committee of Pennsylvania has met on February 25, 2021; and
WHEREAS, United States Senator Patrick Joseph Toomey, Jr., by and through his actions, has failed the People of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; and
WHEREAS, The hyper-partisan U.S. House of Representatives, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, delivered a second Article of Impeachment of President, Donald J. Trump, to the United States Senate for trial; and
WHEREAS, Proceeding with a trial on Articles of Impeachment against a President who has already left office is unprecedented, constitutionally infirm and motivated by the same hyper-partisan interests that sought to impeach the President during the preceding four years; and,
WHEREAS, The Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, in recognition of the folly that was the United States Senate’s Impeachment trial, refused to preside over the trial; and,
WHEREAS, The United States Senate, in direct contravention of Article I, Section 3 of the United States Constitution, proceeded with an Impeachment trial without the Chief Justice presiding; and,
WHEREAS, In a staggering deprivation of Due Process and the right to a fair and unbiased tribunal, United States Senator Patrick Leahy served as judge, juror and witness in the Impeachment trial; and,
WHEREAS, United States Senator Patrick Joseph Toomey, Jr. endorsed this unprecedented unconstitutional action when he voted to proceed with an Impeachment trial for a President who was no longer in office; and then voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump in the above noted felonious
proceeding; thereby be it
