Ky AG Daniel Cameron joins 21 Attorney Generals in letter to U. S. Senate outling flaws in Articles of Impeachment

Attorney General Daniel Cameron today joined 21 Attorneys General from across the country to file the first-ever “Friend of the Senate” letter outlining the legal and factual flaws with the Articles of Impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.

Attorney General Cameron released the following statement regarding the letter:

“Kentuckians deserve to know the votes they cast in the last election will be respected and not overridden by a partisan impeachment process.  Our Constitution prescribes a process for impeachment that is free from politics and used only in extraordinary circumstances.  The process followed in the House of Representatives produced Articles of Impeachment with significant legal and factual deficiencies.  The letter sent today to the Senate outlines the intrinsic risks that such blatantly partisan articles pose both to the institution of the Presidency and our separation of powers structure.”
