EASTMAN RESPONDS TO SENATE ACQUITTAL OF TRUMP
Omaha, Neb. – Today, Kara Eastman, the Democratic nominee for Nebraska’s Second District in 2018 and candidate for NE-02 in 2020, issued the following statement in opposition to the US Senate’s acquittal of President Donald Trump
“The acquittal of President Donald Trump with no witnesses called is an absolute travesty. I am disappointed in the unanimous decision by Nebraska’s federal delegation (especially Rep. Don Bacon) to vote against impeachment in the House and vote for acquittal in the US Senate. The evidence of misconduct is clear and this nevertheless did not matter to our Senators and Representatives. This shows that we need a change in our delegation right away to represent the diversity of opinion and respect for the rule of law in our great State. It's unfortunate that only one Republican, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, was able to demonstrate the courage of his convictions."
Kara is the former President and CEO of Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance and the former Vice-Chair of the Board of Governors of Metropolitan Community College. She owns Kara Eastman Partners and was the Democratic nominee for Congress in Nebraska’s Second District in 2018.
