Dem Rep on Impeachment: Will We Act Like ‘Russia and North Korea’ and ‘Let the Strongmen Do What They Want?’

‘There’s a greater danger leaving this president in office than taking him out through the legal impeachment process’

EXCERPT:

LYNCH: “Ironically, and paradoxically, this is the only type of trial situation where we actually ask the public to weigh in to persuade the jurors, the senators, right? But in this case, these senators are jurists representing the public. So there is that, you know, natural connection and rightful connection, I think. Look, for us in the House, and I think for most democrats, we really don't have a choice. If this is an impeachable conduct -- if this is not impeachable conduct, then nothing is. Nothing is. So this is an attempt to undermine our democracy. This is an attempt to undermine the rule of law. So what we are about in this country? Are we just going to say, OK, we're going to be like Russia and North Korea where, OK, we let the strong men do what they want and we have no rule of law? I mean, I think -- look, I personally think there's a greater danger leaving this president in office than taking him out through -- through the legal impeachment process.”
