Republican Senate candidate John James of Michigan says he opposes the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

James is challenging Democratic Sen. Gary Peters in 2020.

James issued a statement Wednesday saying the impeachment is “not about the rule of law, it is about revenge."

The Republican-controlled Senate is expected to acquit Trump in a trial. Peters has not said how he will vote on removing Trump from office.

He calls abuse of office and obstruction of Congress “very serious charges that deserve solemn consideration.”
