Dem Sen. Merkley: Dems’ Impeachment Is Just Like Protests in Iran and Hong Kong

‘We stand with them in arguing for transparency and accountability, just as right now we’re fighting for transparency and accountability with our own government’

EXCERPT:

MERKLEY: "Well, I’d like to see us stand with them the way we recently stood with the people of Hong Kong. We passed a resolution here, two resolutions, one was my bill saying we will not sell anything to the Hong Kong police and the other being a focus on human rights in Iran — excuse me, in Hong Kong. And it was very important to the people in Hong Kong. They replayed that at their mass rallies, in the street. I want the Iranian people to know we stand with them in arguing for transparency and accountability, just as right now we’re fighting for transparency and accountable — accountability with our own government."
