SUNNYSIDE — Fourth District Congressman Dan Newhouse was one of just 10 Republicans who voted this week to impeach President Donald Trump.

In a news conference this morning (full video below), Newhouse told reporters he remains shocked by the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, in which Trump supporters demanded to overturn the 2020 election. And despite the political risks, he says he doesn’t regret his decision.

“As much as it pains me to do what I did, I just think at some point we in this country have to stand up to what’s right and what’s wrong, no matter who it comes from,” Newhouse said.
