Third Republican Who Voted to Impeach Trump Announces Retirement From Congress
A third Republican who voted to impeach President Donald Trump in January 2021 has announced his retirement from the House of Representatives, further thinning the ranks of Republicans who voted to remove the former President from office. Rep. John Katko of New York announced he would retire on Friday in an email to the press.
Katko follows RINO Republicans Adam Kinzinger and Anthony Gonzalez, both of whom bowed out of Congress in response to political pressure from their constituents and a likely loss at the hands of primary challenger who opposed their decision to impeach the President.
President Donald Trump hailed the news as a positive development, releasing a statement.
“Great news, another one bites the dust. Katko, from Upstate New York, is gone!”
A total of twelve Republicans have announced their intent to retire from Congress rather than face reelection, although more than twice as many Democrats have opted to retire in advance to what many expect will become a bloodbath election for the neoliberal extremist party in November.
Katko had gained a reputation as a Democratic-leaning Republican, distinguishing himself as one of the GOP caucus members who voted for Joe Biden’s initial infrastructure bill in November. The law passed as a result of its Republican support, with Kevin McCarthy unable to whip the RINO members of his Congress to stand against legislation packed with leftist policy priorities.
Notorious RINO Liz Cheney faces a strong primary challenge, with her Wyoming constituents outraged at the neocon congresswoman’s betrayal of Donald Trump.
