Republican Congressman Peter Meijer from Michigan was the only nine Republican congressmen who voted to support the November 3 election result. He said in CNBC’s “Shepard Smith News” that now his life may be threatened.
Meyer said: “We are aware that this is a vote that puts our safety in danger, and we have moved forward. I expect there will be more political violence.” “So, my expectations and talk to me The expectation of some people, they are voting on our conscience for this, there will be some people trying to kill us, and this is the problem we must work hard to solve every day.”
Meyer added that, in turn, this violent threat has forced and will continue to terrorize some of his Republican colleagues to vote on the side of the Trump administration. In a column, Major wrote that a fellow lawmaker only opposed the victory of President-elect Biden because they feared that President Trump’s supporters would come to his or her family.
Meyer said: “This is the conscience in the heart of a colleague, and the last thing that person said to me is to worry about that person’s family safety, if that person votes to prove the result of the election.” “That’s what words brought us. Place. This is the level of fear.”
The House of Representatives is now on the verge of an unprecedented second impeachment of Trump. Democrats in the House of Representatives published an impeachment article accusing Trump of inciting the mob that swept the Capitol last week. It killed 5 people, including a policeman.
This article accused Trump of “proving that he will continue to pose a threat to national security, democracy and the constitution.” The impeachment vote is scheduled for Wednesday. Major said he “strongly considered” voting to impeach Trump.
Meyer explained to the host Shepard Smith: “I have some colleagues who object and raise concerns about time, raise concerns about process, raise concerns about reception.” “I haven’t heard anyone say anything about it. The facts of the case raise any questions. I believe that the President’s actions last Wednesday disqualified him and made him unfit for office.”
According to sources, minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told House Republicans on a conference call that President Trump should bear part of the responsibility for the deadly riot. Meyer said that the future of the Republican Party is up in the air. He added that the Republican Party needs to cover up its lie that November 3 was Trump’s overwhelming victory and many Republican voters have been deceived by those in power.
Meyer said: “We did not tell the American people and their supporters what they need to hear, but too many politicians tell them what they want to hear.” “This passive leadership style will not make the Republican Party a trustworthy party. To govern the party in this country again, we need to solve this problem.”
