WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Kathleen Rice (NY-04) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to acquit former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial:

“The Senate’s failure to hold a President accountable who incited an insurrection leaves our democracy vulnerable to future attacks. Our House impeachment managers did an admirable job. In compelling fashion, they laid out a damning indictment of Trump’s guilt. I commend the Republicans that took a stand and did the right thing. Those that didn’t will forever be on the wrong side of history.”
