The Louisiana Republican Party on Tuesday issued a rebuke of Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) over his vote declaring that former President Trump’s impeachment trial is constitutional.
Cassidy joined five other Republican senators and every Democrat in the upper chamber in rejecting an attempt to derail the proceedings. Cassidy had previously supported an effort by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) that would have declared the trial unconstitutional and was the only lawmaker to vote for that measure and flip Tuesday to say the trial can proceed. Cassidy also later said Trump’s defense team was “disorganized.”
“The Republican Party of Louisiana is profoundly disappointed by Senator Bill Cassidy’s vote on the constitutionality of the impeachment trial now underway against former President, now private citizen, Donald J. Trump,” the party said in a statement.
“We feel that an impeachment trial of a private citizen is not only an unconstitutional act, but also an attack on the very foundation of American democracy, which will have far reaching and unforeseen consequences for our republic,” it added.
