Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich urges Sens. Sinema, McSally to reject articles of impeachment against Trump

By Maria Polletta | Arizona Republic 

Attorney General Mark Brnovich on Wednesday called on U.S. Senators Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema to reject the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

In a letter to Arizona’s senators, who are jurors in the Trump impeachment trial, Brnovich deemed the charges “a threat to the separation of governmental powers that our Founding Fathers embedded in our Nation’s Constitution.”

“Ultimately, the Constitutional Convention agreed to divide the power of impeachment between the House and Senate and set a high bar for removal from office to prevent impeachment from becoming a weapon of the majority,” Brnovich wrote. “I urge you to decline the House’s invitation to erode our constitutional foundation.”

The Republican prosecutor’s letter followed a 14-page missive submitted by 21 other attorneys general from throughout the country. The joint letter aimed to lay out “the legal flaws of this impeachment and how it undermines the democratic process.”
