Here’s how Wisconsin’s representatives voted in the second impeachment of President Trump
WASHINGTON — Ten Republicans joined every Democrat in the House of Representatives in voting to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time.
Here is how representatives from Wisconsin voted on House Resolution 24 to impeach the president:
Rep. Bryan Steil (R, 1st District) – Nay
Rep. Mark Pocan (D, 2nd District) – Yay
Rep. Ron Kind (D, 3rd District) – Yay
Rep. Gwen Moore (D, 4th District) – Yay
Rep. Scott Fitzgerald (R, 5th District) – Nay
Rep. Glenn Grothman (R, 6th District) – Nay
Rep. Tom Tiffany (R, 7th District) – Nay
Rep. Mike Gallagher (R, 8th District) – Nay
After the vote, Steil released a statement saying the impeachment created what he called a “horrible precedent for future administrations.”
Pocan said before the vote that Congress needed to make sure Trump could never run for office again. After the vote he criticized Republicans like Rep. Gallagher, who last week called the siege at the Capitol “banana republic crap” that shouldn’t happen in the United States, but still voted against impeachment.
“You can’t give the president bananas and then all of a sudden say you have a banana republic in the final two weeks. You need to have a little more self-awareness,” Pocan said.
