DANNEMORA, N.Y. (WWNY) - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik publicly opposed the push to impeach President Trump Saturday.
Stefanik was in Dannemora, New York rallying against the state closure of the Clinton Annex, a medium security prison among two other prisons set to be closed in New York by the end of March. One of those prisons being the Watertown Correctional Facility.
Our sister station WCAX out of Burlington, Vermont spoke with Stefanik at that rally, and asked if she supports the impeachment of President Trump. Here’s what she said:
“I oppose the democrats very political push to impeach the President. there are 12 days left before the inauguration. There will be an inauguration and a peaceful transition of power on January 20th. That is the American way,” said Stefanik.
When the President was impeached December 2019, Congresswoman Stefanik was a key player in defending the President, having been named to his impeachment defense team.
