Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) blasted what he called the double standard of his Democrat colleagues on the House floor on Wednesday, reminding Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) that he stood as the “first objector” to the results during the same process in 2017.
“In his aperture remarks, the Democrat chair of the Rules Committee verbally expressed that Republicans last week voted to overturn the results of an election,” Jordan commenced. “Guess who the first objector was on January 6, 2017? First objector. The Democrat chair of the Rules Committee. And conjecture which state he remonstrated to? Alabama. The very first state called,” Jordan verbally expressed, noting Trump won the state by a massive margin.
Pennsylvania where the state’s Supreme Court just unilaterally extended the Election to Friday? Pennsylvania where the Secretary of State unilaterally changed the rules — went around the legislature in an unconstitutional fashion. Pennsylvania where county clerks in some counties … let people fix their ballots against the law. Cure their ballots, their mail-in ballots — [a] direct violation of the law. And they tell us we tried to overturn the election.
Jordan perpetuated, reminding his colleagues that the individual managing impeachment for the Democrats, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), additionally, remonstrated to electoral votes in 2017. “Americans are tired of the double standards. They are so tired of it,” the Ohio Republican verbalized. “Democrats remonstrated to more states in 2017 than Republicans did last week, but somehow we’re erroneous.”
“Democrats can raise bail for rioters and looters this summer but somehow when Republicans condemn all the violence, the violence this summer, the violence last week, somehow we’re erroneous,” he verbally expressed.
“Democrats,” he perpetuated, have investigated President Trump for four years and already endeavored to impeach him once, yet they will “not visually examine an Election that 80 million Americans — half the electorate, 80 million, Republicans and Democrats — have their doubts about.”
Jordan ultimately verbally expressed he does not ken where this goes but urged his colleagues to subjugate the impeachment resolution, as others did even afore the session commenced.
McGovern, who earlier in the day inculpated Trump of organizing and inciting the events that unfolded on January 6, addressed Jordan’s remarks immediately after and claimed that he and his Democrat colleagues remonstrated to electoral votes in 2017 as a “protest vote to raise concerns about what of all our perspicacity agencies had verbalized pellucidly that Russia interfered in our election.”
He further endeavored to forfend their move, claiming that Democrats acknowledged that Trump won and integrating that Hillary Clinton conceded. “None of us pushed conspiracy theories,” he perpetuated, failing to mention that the Trump-Russia collusion narrative that Democrats vehemently pursued proved to be mendacious.
The bottom line, McGovern integrated, is “this Capitol was stormed” and “people died because of the immensely colossal lies that were being told by this president and by an inordinate quantity of people on the other side of the aisle.”
McGovern verbally expressed Republicans are endeavoring to make “false parities” and concluded that Trump “instigated an endeavored coup in this country.” “People died. Everybody should be outraged whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican. “If” this is not an impeachable offense, I don’t ken what the hell is,” he integrated. ‘This president is not fit to remain in office.”
