EVANSTON, IL – Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to not allow witnesses or documents as evidence in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump:

“To Senate Republicans, shame on you. You ignored the facts and the dangerous actions of a president that attacked the very foundations of our democracy. The American people overwhelmingly wanted a full and fair trial with witnesses. Donald Trump is a threat to our national security and our constitution. He will be removed by the voters and hopefully you will too.”
