If you thought you’d heard about all of the ridiculous and asinine suggestions possible from Congressional Republicans, they may have just topped themselves by admitting that they want to try and unimpeach failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump if they happen to win the upcoming midterm elections.
Earlier today, Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) introduced a resolution that would completely expunge Trump’s second impeachment, the one that focused on his attempt to stage a coup and overturn the results of a free an fair presidential election.
According to Mullin’s resolution:
“Resolved, That the January 13, 2021, impeachment of President Donald John Trump is expunged, as if such Article had never passed the full House of Representatives, the facts and circumstances upon which such Article was based met the burden of proving neither that President Trump committed ‘high Crimes and Misdemeanors’, as set forth in section 4 of Article II of the Constitution, nor that President Trump engaged in ‘insurrection or rebellion against the United States’, such that he is forever precluded from ‘hold[ing] any office under the United States’ pursuant to section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.”
Yes, Congressman Mullin and his co-sponsors are literally trying to rewrite history by making it appear that Trump played no role in January 6, 2021 and should never have been impeached because he did nothing wrong, even though the facts clearly suggest otherwise.
Of course, Mullin and other brainwashed pro-Trump Republicans may wind up with a entire carton of eggs on their faces when the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection holds public hearings next month, as evidence is laid out for the American people which is likely to show that Trump and members of Congress played active roles in the attack which left five people dead and has resulted in the prosecution of hundreds of rioters.
