Press release from Rep. Jared Huffman’s office:
Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, January 13, 2021 Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) delivered remarks on the Floor of the House of Representatives in support of H.Res. 24, impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for incitement of insurrection. Below are the Congressman’s remarks:
Representative Huffman: Madam Speaker, history is watching and saving the receipts. Today, my colleagues across the aisle must choose which side of a very bright line they want to be recorded on for all time.
On one side: lies, sedition, inciting and supporting insurrection and domestic terrorism.
The other side: your oath of office, the constitution, democracy, decency.
There is no middle ground.
Today, we make history forever. So choose well. A vote to impeach Donald Trump means years from now, you can look your grandchildren in the eye and say ‘I did the right thing’.
I yield back.
