How each Ga., Ala. House representative voted during the impeachment proceedings

Washington, D.C. (WTVM) - With just seven days left in his term, President Donald Trump has become the first president in United States history to be impeached twice.

Democrats in the House of Representatives swiftly began the impeachment process against Pres. Trump after a protest of alleged Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol building turned deadly.

The final vote saw ten House Republicans break from party lines and vote in favor of impeaching Pres. Trump, leading to a vote of 232 in favor and 197 against.

News Leader 9 is breaking down how each representative from Georgia and Alabama voted in the proceedings.

Two Georgia representatives, Rep. Sanford Bishop and Rep. Drew Ferguson, and one Alabama representative, Rep. Mike Rogers, represent the people of the Chattahoochee Valley.

All Georgia and Alabama representatives followed their party lines as was expected.

Rep. Drew Ferguson released a statement following the historic vote, saying:

As our nation looks for healing in the wake of last Wednesday’s events, this impeachment exercise further drives the division in our country and could lead to more violence when we need calm. With only a few days until President-elect Biden’s inauguration, this process also has no prospect for removing the President before the natural end of his term. Congressional Democrats should set aside vengefulness for the good of the country. Furthermore, moving forward with articles of impeachment for political purposes without an investigation or any semblance of due process does nothing to heal this nation. It’s time for Congress to listen to Americans from both sides of the aisle, take time to evaluate our failures and begin leading America to ensure the American dream can be realized by every citizen.
Congressman Drew Ferguson
