Lewis: ‘The Future of Our Democracy is at Stake’
On the House floor Tuesday, Rep. John Lewis called for the impeachment of President Trump to begin, declaring that “the future of our democracy is at stake.”
Referring to the much-hyped “scandal” of Trump purportedly asking the Ukraine President to investigate the shady business dealings of White House hopeful Joe Biden‘s son Hunter in that country, Lewis said, “We tried every other path and used any other tool. We will any find the truth unless we use the power given to the House of Representatives and the House alone, to begin an official investigation as dictated by the Constitution.”
“The future of our democracy is at stake,” he continued. “There comes a time when you have to be moved by the spirit of history to take action to protect the integrity of our nation. I believe, I truly believe, the time to begin impeachment proceedings against this president has come. To delay or to do otherwise would betray the foundation of our democracy.”
The Ukraine scandal is Biden’s, not Trump’s, but the Democrats are desperate for an excuse to impeach.
