Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., one of ten House Republicans who voted to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump on allegations of Incitement to revolt, is facing criticism from her conservative base district. Clark County wrote in a letter to Herrera Beutler that on behalf of her whole membership, the Clark County Republican Women Executive Board united in condemning your actions to deceive a sitting Republican President, i.e., Trump. Moreover, the nation will never forget your vote, as your action is a personal affront to the more than seventy million Americans who choose Trump as their president.
Beutler represents the Clark County of Washington, near the Washington-Oregon border. With ten Republican votes, the second impeachment of Donald Trump was the most bilateral one in history. By comparison with history, five Democratic representatives voted to impeach Bill Clinton in 1998. Herrera Beutler was not a single Washington state Republican to back impeachment; Representative Dan Newhouse also so the same thing. Chair of Clark County Republicans, Joel Mattila, stated that the vote of Herrera Beutler sparked anger in the ranks.
Mattila told The Columbian people to support traditionally and typically Congresswoman Buetler from old-time party regulators. Further, she states that there is a lot of anger in the lines because of her impeachment vote. The group said in a letter to Beutler that if she cast this vote to impeach, she will never receive their votes or support again at any time sooner or later. They will also do everything in their strength as the largest Republican organization of Women in Washington State to hire and elect a conservative contender who will represent their values.

Head of Activate Republicans Clark County, David Gellatly, told the Columbian that her seat could be at risk. David further adds that this was possibly the single vote that Beutler may make that basically will almost eliminate her chances of making her way through the primary. The public wants someone else instantly to start stepping up – there are a lot of names that are very likely. The inquiry of Fox News to Beutler’s office didn’t return immediately.
Jaime Herrera Beutler tweeted that the electoral votes of counting are the Constitution in process. She was actually explaining her vote of impeachment. A ruthless crowd stopping the electoral votes counting by force is the essence of attacking the Constitution. Trump either wanted the mob he helped organize to take these steps, or he did not care enough about his work responsibilities to try to stop them.
The president either wanted the mob he helped mobilize to take these steps, or he didn’t care enough about his job responsibilities to try to stop them. Either way, it’s impeachable.
