Quotes from the news wire:
It's not only the people who had knowledge of what the president knew, the American people saw the police officers who were beaten and spit on and stampeded -- 50 of them injured and almost 20 of them hospitalized, one of them killed. The cafeteria workers who ran for their lives as well. There's a lot of witnesses to this crime.
This was not a heated passion crime. This didn't happen spontaneouslywith words just slipping out Donald Trump's mouth at that rally. For months he had propagated this big lie to radicalize these terrorists [and] to call ... thecalvary to Washington, and he called it 'stop the steal,' and if you're not an elected representative, the only way that you can stop the stealis by taking a physical act. He told them, don't show weakness, you will lose your country if you don't fight.
Usama bin Laden did not enter US soil on Sept. 11, but it was widely acknowledged that he was responsible for inspiring the attack on our country, and the president, with his words — using the word ‘fight,’ with the speakers that he assembled that day, who called for trial by combat and said we have to take names and kick a--, that is hate speech that inspired and radicalized people to storm the Capitol.
Impeachment is the most extraordinary remedy the Constitution affords Congress, as a former prosecutor, I do not take this lightly. But the President continues to put his own interests above America's. He is lawless. His relentless attacks on our rule of law and numerous efforts to obstruct justice and Congress have reached such a point to require extraordinary action. It's time for Congress to open an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
To believe that it will be the next generation whose leadership will solve climate chaos, bring cures in our lifetime for health care, address the student loan debt crisis and make sure that we say enough is enough, we don't have to live this way anymore and that we love our children more than we love our guns.
That candidate was then-Sen. Joe Biden. Joe Biden was right when Joe Biden said that 32 years ago, joe Biden is still right today. If we are going to solve the issue, pass the torch. If we are going to solve climate chaos, pass the torch. If we want to end gun violence and solve student debt, pass the torch.
You can be the President's defense attorney or America's Attorney General, but you can't be both, he came to this job already biased. Today, he made a show of allegiance to the President over The American people by declaring' no collusion' and excusing the President on the basis of his emotional state. He has proved that he's an embedded Donald Trump ally who puts this President's political future above of the rule of law. That makes him unfit to serve. He must resign.
A year ago, hope died at Parkland, but, in a uniquely American way, owing to the courage and strength of children, hope was reborn at Parkland. Hope has been reborn here in America too. That's why I started my campaign at Parkland. I pledged to that community what I pledge to you -- I will be the first campaign to make ending gun violence the top priority in my campaign.
I don't expect they will (declassify) because I think this is just more obstruction, if he has evidence that she committed a crime, he actually can show us what his evidence is. Right now he has a credibility problem because he's been proved wrong a lot. ... This seems nothing more than buying time and obstructionism.
I think we should hear from him in the public and that we should get to the bottom of just exactly why was he working with Russia Today, as a former Defense Intelligence Agency director, he of all people knows that agency is connected to Russia's intelligence services and so to take money from them and to work with Russian ambassador after sanctions were put on Russia and to lie to the vice president, that's powerful evidence that he knew what was going on and this was converging at the time of Russia's interference campaign.
