House of Representatives Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said in his speech that the thugs who attacked the Capitol will be brought to justice. He said that among some congressmen accusing other congressmen of inciting riots, accomplices on the floor will also be held accountable.
Nadler said: “We will bring the mob to justice. Their accomplices in this house will be held accountable.” “But today we must focus on the most serious threat first: President Trump.”
Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, who served as the chief impeachment manager in Trump’s last impeachment process, said that the United States has gone through civil wars, world wars, and the Great Depression and is now “Trump and white nationalist riots.”
Schiff said: “This is one of them.” “Enough.”
Rep. James Clayburn (DS.C.) argued that while Republicans called for unity and recovery, it was the president who refused to recognize Biden’s victory, which led to a violent transition of power.
Clayburn said: “This president’s refusal to participate in the peaceful transfer of power and his role in inciting last week’s violence constitute an existential threat. This threat must be eliminated immediately.”
The co-sponsor of the article, Rep. Jamie Raskin, warned that if the president does not take responsibility, it will pose a threat to the future of legislators. He emphasized: “Everyone in our conference room is May die.”
