Elise Stefanik Introduces Resolution to Expunge Trump’s Second Impeachment: ‘Sham Process’

House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has introduced a resolution to “expunge” President Donald Trump’s second impeachment.

Stefanik and more than two dozen of her Republican colleagues are backing the resolution, blasting Trump’s second impeachment as a “sham process.”

Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) is leading the effort to push the resolution past Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

“Democrats used their second impeachment resolution to once again weaponize one of the most grave and consequential powers of the House,” Mullin said in a statement.

“This was never about the Constitution; it was rooted in personal politics.”

Stefanik said:

“The American people know Democrats weaponized the power of impeachment against President Donald Trump to advance their own extreme political agenda.

“From the beginning of this sham process, I stood up against Nancy Pelosi’s blatant attempt to shred the Constitution as House Democrats ignored precedent and failed to follow the legislative process.

“But President Donald Trump was rightfully acquitted, and it is past time to expunge Democrats’ sham smear against not only President Trump’s name but against millions of patriots across the country.

The resolution has 28 cosponsors, including Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Brian Mast (R-FL), and Jody Hice (R-GA).

From The Hill:

A copy of Mullin’s draft bill obtained by The Hill said that the incitement of insurrection impeachment charge “contains a subjective account of that which transpired at the Capitol on January 6, 2021” and “omits any discussion of the circumstances, unusual voting patterns, and  voting anomalies of the 2020 Presidential election itself.”

Mullin, a former mixed martial arts fighter, leaped into action to barricade doors to the House chamber during the Jan. 6 Capitol [riot], making his move to erase Trump’s impeachment after the [riot] particularly notable.
