Jason Crow, D-Colo, a former Army Ranger with multiple combat deployments, called on his Republican colleagues to find the courage to vote to impeach Trump."Last week I stood in that gallery to defend this chamber against the violent mob called here by Donald Trump.

Leadership is hard. It's time to impeach."

I thought only the Iranian parliament was made up of the most corrupt mafia affiliates. We have on JZarif You have dozens. itsnotover gnuman1979 Heard that on Cuomo tonight....I was amazed but glad. OMG the acting is awful what a tool What an idiotic statement And they have lots of guns now! Many forces are a sign that there are decisions that many may not be satisfied with.

What the divisive and delusional Donald Trump has done to The Capital, Democracy, and the upcoming Presidential Inauguration requiring protection against Domestic Threats! 📠📠 Trump may be indicted by NY right after he leaves office. He is headed to jail. One troop in DC should be more than Afghanistan. GTFO of that damn war.

LOL he was there. How much more evidence of wrong doing does he need. Sure... why convict a murderer when the victim is already dead anyway? Judging from the heavy military presence at the Capitol, someone’s decided to install democracy in America. To me, this was one of the best beginnings of a speech I've heard from the House today.

Sedition and treason have consequences. Someone should tell Kevin. People who ask why impeach if Trump is out of office in a week, I’ll give you this. If a 100 year old person commits murder you wouldn’t just say “well there is no point in charging them because they won’t be around soon”. ImpeachTrump

That fool and his extinct GOP had 4 years to contain the monster they created. Time's up, time to accept your consequences for sedition. We will not let up this time. TRUMP IS A DICTATOR!!!! NOT A PRESIDENT FOR AMERICA!!!! Trump stated yesterday on T.v. he was not responsible for Jan 6th. So McCarthy lying

Isn't it ironic that these Republicans spend 15 to 20 years in office having done absolutely nothing and when pressed to do something in a timely manner they respond with the excuse that they have ran out of time. Typical disgusting behavior from Republicans Gag. WhiteSupremacy 🖕 What should be the punishment?
