U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued the following statement regarding the Democratic resolution passed by the House of Representatives to establish rules for the partisan impeachment inquiry targeting President Trump:

“The Democrats’ impeachment resolution is biased and rigged to ensure the President, his legal team, and defenders are denied basic procedural and due process rights.  The travesty is that there are more pressing issues Congress should be working on for the American people.  Unfortunately, the Democrats have chosen, yet again, to pursue their own political vendettas. ”
