Rep. opposes impeachment
January 21, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Fifth Congressional District Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is the only representative in Washington state to oppose last week’s impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.
McMorris Rodgers, R-Spokane, backed the president against allegations of incitement of insurrection, while the rest of the state delegation supported impeachment. Her district includes Whitman County.
Fourth Congressional District Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Sunnyside, supported impeachment, as did fellow Republican and Third Congressional District Rep. Jamie Herrera Beautler of Battle Ground.
The state Republican party has rebuked both Newhouse and Herrera Beutler for their support of impeachment.
