On Wednesday, Congresswoman Yvette Herrell from New Mexico’s Second District rose, along with her colleagues, to speak out in opposition to the Democrats’ second impeachment attempt of President Donald J. Trump, this time erroneously accusing him of “incitement of insurrection.”
The Congresswoman’s full floor speech reads as follows:
“Thank you, Madam Speaker. I rise in opposition to these articles of impeachment. Political violence has no place in our constitutional republic and those who assaulted police officers and forced their way into the Capitol are responsible for their criminal actions. Leaders in both parties have a responsibility to condemn such violence, whether in the halls of Congress or the streets of America. I don’t believe, Madam Speaker, that the American people have an appetite for this. They are expecting us to do the will of them–those who sent us from each state around the nation. Right now, Madam Speaker, we’ve seen this body impeach once before–trying to do it a second time. Two wrongs do not make a right. We’ve got to stand for the American people because we will not get a second chance to get this right the first time.
