EXCERPT:

JEFFRIES: "To solicit foreign interference in an American election, that is unacceptable. That is unconscionable.  That is unconstitutional. There are some who cynically argue that the impeachment of this president will further divide an already fractured union, but there is a difference between division and clarification. Slavery once divided the nation, but emancipators rose up to clarify that all men are created equally. Suffrage once divided the nation, but women rose up to clarify that all voices must be heard in our democracy. Jim Crow once divided the nation, but civil rights champions rose up to clarify that all are entitled to equal protection under the law. There is a difference between division and clarification.”
