NEGUSE: THE PRESIDENT TRIED TO UNDERMINE OUR DEMOCRACY

DPCC Co-Chair Neguse appeared on MSNBC, Saying the President Incited a Violent Attack on Our Democracy and Must Be Held Accountable

 

(Washington, DC) Congressman Joe Neguse, Co-Chair of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC), appeared on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber Monday and Meet the Press Tuesday. Neguse, also an impeachment manager, discussed the importance of holding the President accountable for inciting an attack on our Democracy.

“At the end of the day, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Americans of good faith all recognize that what happened on January 6th can never happen again. As Liz Cheney said so eloquently during the impeachment proceedings in the House: this President incited the mob, he summoned the mob, he assembled the mob, he lit the flame of the attack,” Neguse said. “And of course, every single United States Senator was a witness and ultimately a victim to the armed insurrection. Many of the managers – myself included – were on the floor of the House the day that the armed insurrection took place. We all experienced it in real time. It is abundantly clear that this President has no interest in ensuring the peaceful transfer of power. I think that ultimately if the Senators apply an impartial lens to the evidence that we present during the trial, I think they will reach the same conclusion that Republicans and Democrats in the House reached, which is that the President committed a high crime and misdemeanor and that he ought to be convicted.”
