With less than two weeks left in the Trump Administration, Montana Republican Representative Matt Rosendale says that he won’t support cutting it short.

Rosendale says Jan. 20 will mark the transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden.

In a statement Friday, Rosendale says he opposes impeachment, as some of his Democratic colleagues in the U.S. House are considering, and “other methods of denying President Trump his legal term in office.”

He called impeachment and removal attempts "media stunts drawn from left-wing fever dreams.” Rosendale was unavailable for further comment on Friday.

Rosendale condemned “political violence in all forms” Wednesday after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, as did Democratic members of the U.S. House who say Trump’s rhetoric provoked the attack.
