Rep. Cori Bush: We Have a Mandate to ‘Root out White Supremacy, Starting with Impeaching the White Supremacist-in-Chief’

‘The 117th Congress must understand that we have a mandate to legislate in defense of Black lives’

TRANSCRIPT:

BUSH: "Madam Speaker, St. Louis and I rise in support of the article of impeachment against Donald J. Trump. If we fail to remove a white supremacist president, who incited a white supremacist insurrection, it’s communities like Missouri’s First District that suffer the most. The 117th Congress must understand that we have a mandate to legislate in defense of black lives. The first step in that process is to root out white supremacy, starting with impeaching the white supremacist-in-chief. Thank you and I yield back."
