The following Resolution was passed by the Washington State Republican Party on Saturday, January 16th, 2021, by a vote of 111-2. All three members of the Klickitat County Republican Central Committee unanimously voted for the passage. The Resolution specifically mentions and condemns the actions of Representatives Jaime Herrera-Butler and Dan Newhouse for their vote in support of impeachment.

Resolution to Condemn the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump
Whereas, we are the Party of Law and Order and are opposed to criminal violence and destruction of any kind, including the violence at the Capitol on January 6th and the violence of BLM and left-wing rioters in nearly every major city throughout the summer; and
Whereas, we support law enforcement and the prosecution of all violent crime to the fullest extent of the law; and
Whereas, the multiple serious concerns of millions of Americans regarding the 2020 election were ignored by both the offending states and Congress, creating an atmosphere of anger and distrust; and
Whereas, media and Big Tech were complicit in the suppression of our First Amendment right of free speech during the election and its aftermath, further fomenting an atmosphere of anger and distrust; and
Whereas, impeachment is a political tool wielded by Speaker Pelosi and Democrats in Congress as an attempt to hinder the political future of Donald J. Trump and further divide and polarize our nation; and
Whereas, the Article presented before the House centered around whether President Trump’s words directly incited the violence that took place at the U.S. Capitol last week; and
Whereas, the House did not perform its obligation to present evidence, but instead rushed through a process meant to be undertaken with thorough and thoughtful consideration; and
Whereas, Democrats and some Republicans, with particular disappointment in Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler and Congressman Dan Newhouse, voted to impeach President Trump just one week before the end of his term; and
Whereas, the Constitution itself states that President Trump would not be subject to impeachment conviction after leaving office under its impeachment clauses, making the decision to impeach nothing more than a political spectacle; and
Whereas, this impeachment has solved nothing other than to further divide and polarize our nation, giving more fuel to flames fanned by the Democrats, media, and Big Tech,
Now, therefore, be it resolved, that the Washington State Republican Party (WSRP) condemns without question or exception the actions taken by the U.S. House of Representatives in the impeachment of President Donald J Trump; and
Be it further resolved, that the WSRP is committed to countering the division and polarization of our nation by uniting behind our founding principles, refusing to bow to the hysteria and false narrative that is constantly manufactured by today’s Democratparty, mainstream media, and Big Tech, and by continuing to fight for the policies that benefit all Americans.
