LIEU: WE CAN’T IGNORE AN ATTACK ON OUR DEMOCRACY

DPCC Co-Chair Ted Lieu Appeared on MSNBC, Saying You Can’t Ignore our Commander-in-Chief Inciting an Attack on Our Own Country

 

(Washington, DC) Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-33), Co-Chair of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC), appeared on The ReidOut and Velshi on MSNBC Friday and Sunday.  Lieu, also an impeachment manager, stressed the importance of holding former President Trump accountable for inciting a violent attack on our Nation’s democracy.

“We can’t just ignore what happened on January 6th. This was a violent attack on our Nation’s Capitol, incited by the former President, resulting in multiple deaths. You had members of this mob trying to assassinate Speaker Pelosi, trying to assassinate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, trying to hang [former] Vice President Pence. We can’t just pretend that didn’t happen. And we need to have a conviction to show that future presidents can never ever try doing this again after they lost an election,” said Lieu.
