Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said this week that she believes it would be “appropriate” to block President Trump from holding future office adding she believes he has committed an impeachable offense.
Murkowski hasn’t said if she will vote to convict Trump at the end of a Senate trial after a bipartisan coalition in the House impeached Trump for “willfully inciting violence against the Government of the United States.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“What I will tell you is that what I believe is that this president has committed an impeachable offense through his words on the sixth of January, and leading up to the sixth of January, when he was not honest to the American people about the election and the election results,” Murkowski told KTUU, an Alaska TV station, on Wednesday.
Preventing President Trump from ever holding federal office again would be “one of the most consequential actions that we could take” and would be “appropriate … given what we have seen from his actions and his failure to uphold the Constitution,” Murkowski stated.
On Thursday, she posted a statement to Twitter regarding the House impeaching Trump. “For months, the President has perpetrated false rhetoric that the election was stolen and rigged, even after dozens of courts ruled against these claims,” she wrote.
Murkowski added that when the Article of Impeachment comes to the Senate, “I will listen carefully and consider the arguments of both sides, and will then announce how I will vote.”
