COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Rep. Joe Wilson was one of five U.S. representatives of South Carolina who voted against the second impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Wilson said the impeachment was divisive, and he looks forward to working with President-elect Joe Biden.
He released the following statement:
“The horrific violence that took place at the Capitol last week should never be repeated. American leadership should not divide our country but instead unite it. President Donald Trump has agreed to a peaceful transition of power and impeaching a president so close to a new administration impedes that process and only serves to further divide our country. President-elect Joe Biden will take office next week and I look forward to working with him for the good of South Carolina and the United States.”
Wilson also tweeted on Thursday that he helped provide lunch for Capitol Police officers in the wake of the deadly riot.
