WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Rice (R-S.C) released the following statement regarding the acquittal of President Trump.

“For the past five months, Democrats have wasted American tax dollars and time in their attempt to overturn the 2016 election. The President has a responsibility to make sure our foreign aid is not lost to corruption. Despite the lack of an impeachable offense, Democrats have held our nation’s legislature hostage in attempt to remove President Trump. It was time to put this farce behind us. Congress can now return to the work that the American people sent us here to accomplish.”
