House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opens debate on President Trump's second impeachment hearing. She argues the rioters were sent to Capitol Hill by the president and that the move to impeach, in light of the possible incitement of violence, is "not motivated by partisanship." "We took an oath to protect the Constitution," Pelosi said. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO: https://cnb.cx/2NGeIvi
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on lawmakers to uphold their oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, by voting to impeach President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection against Congress in an effort to overturn the 2020 election.
“We know we face enemies of the Constitution, we know we experienced the insurrection that violated the sanctity of the people’s Capitol and attempted to overturn the duly recorded will of the American people,” Pelosi said in an fiery speech that opened debate on the House floor.
“And we know that the president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country,” Pelosi said.
“He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.“
Pelosi pointed to Trump’s efforts to “unconstitutionally influence state election officials to repeal reality.” She called for the Senate convict Trump “to ensure that the republic will be safe from this man who so resolutely determined to tear down the things we hold dear.”
