Anxiety was high on the House floor as congressmen and women discussed impeachment against President Donald Trump. Democrats presented an impeachment article that says Trump is guilty of “incitement of insurrection” due to his speech telling followers to keep fighting as lawmakers went through with certifying Biden’s win. After his speech, a group of his followers went into the Capitol building, with some of them being shot by police.
Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), who led the Democrats during the impeachment debate said, “If this isn’t impeachable, I would like to hear what the hell is.”
After McGovern was done, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) reminded him that in 2017, he objected to the certification of Alabama, which President Trump won by 30 points. “If the DNC can object to Alabama, why can’t we object to Pennsylvania, which was much closer? Actually, overall, Democrats objected to more states in 2017 than we did last week,” said Jordan.
“American voters are exhausted by this double standard,” Jordan said.
McGovern argued against Jordan’s comparison. Because, he said that Democrats “all agreed Trump was president.”
But of course that wasn’t the case. Democrats refused to acknowledge President Trump’s inauguration, and went for a long investigation they hoped would show his campaign had organized with Russia. And Hillary Clinton presented many of her own conspiracy theories as to why Trump defeated her.
“You can have the best people and campaign, and even win the nomination for your party, and you can still have the election stolen away,” Clinton said. She then joined other Dems in referring to the President as “illegitimate”.
