On Wednesday, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is set to force through a rushed and vengeful second impeachment attempt in her chamber of Congress, which already has anti-Trump neocons and Democrats licking their lips at the prospect of taking down President Trump.
Democrats in New Mexico’s U.S. House delegation have lined up one by one and proudly shouted their support for another impeachment charade. This time, the impeachment claims the President “incited” what Democrats are calling “insurrection.”
U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich wrote on his Facebook wall, “So should Donald Trump be impeached? Obviously. Should he be allowed to ever hold office again? Absolutely not. There must be accountability as we hold responsible those who committed these violent acts, those like the President who incited these crimes, and those who enabled the President’s worst impulses.”
According to the Roswell Daily Record, Adan Serna, a spokesman for Democrat Ben Ray Luján, said, “If the impeachment proceedings come to the U.S. Senate and there is a trial, Lujan will support impeachment.”
First-term Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez posted on Facebook, “Our beloved democracy was violently attacked. It’s time to finally hold this President accountable.”
Rep. Deb Haaland did not respond to comments from the media today about the impeachment. However, she was rabidly supportive of the Democrats’ first impeachment attempt. She is former Vice President Joe Biden’s nominee for Department of the Interior despite her lack of experience in land management.
New Mexico’s lone Republican in the delegation, Rep. Yvette Herrell, spoke out strongly against impeachment or invocation of the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump, writing, “I don’t believe invoking the 25th or going through a second impeachment is really healthy for the nation. I think it puts fuel on the fire and I’m not in favor of that.”
The U.S. House of Representatives is slated to vote on the partisan impeachment attempt this afternoon. All of New Mexico’s congressional Democrats will likely vote for impeachment.
