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