Pelosi: Trump ‘Must Go, He Is a Clear and Present Danger to the Nation that We All Love’

‘The President of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion, against our common country’

EXCERPT:

PELOSI: “We know that we face enemies of the Constitution. We know we experience the insurrection that violated the sanctity of the people’s capitol and attempted to overturn the duly recorded will of the American people. And we know that the president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion, against our common country. He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love. Since the presidential election in November, an election the president lost, he has repeatedly lied about the outcome, sow self-serving doubt about democracy and unconstitutionally sought to influence state officials to repeal reality. And then came that day of fire we all experienced. The president must be impeached and I believe the president must be convicted by the Senate, a constitutional remedy that will ensure that the republic will be safe from this man who is so resolutely determined to tear down the things that we hold dear and that hold us together. It gives me no pleasure to say this. It breaks my heart. It should break your heart, it should break all of our hearts.”
