Hoyer: It is never too late to do the right thing
Rep. Steny Hoyer is calling for President Donald Trump to be impeached a second time, a week after he encouraged a mob of loyalists to “fight like hell” against election results just before they stormed the U.S. Capitol in a deadly siege. (Jan. 13)
“There are consequences to actions, and the actions of the president of the United States demand urgent, clear action by the Congress of the United States,” said Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the Democratic majority leader.
At least five Republican lawmakers, including third-ranking House GOP leader Liz Cheney of Wyoming, were unswayed by the president’s logic. The Republicans announced they would vote to impeach Trump, cleaving the Republican leadership, and the party itself.
Cheney’s father was the vice president under President George W. Bush and a Republican leader in the House. “She knows of what she speaks,” said Rep. Hoyer.
