As the House debated whether to impeach President Trump for a second time, Rep. Louie Gohmert took the floor and presented what he hinted was a Democratic double standard.

“Here’s a quote: ‘I just don’t even know why there aren’t more- why there aren’t uprisings all over the country and maybe there will be,'” Gohmert began. “Or, ‘Sadly, the domestic enemies of our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in Congress.’ We were called ‘enemies’ of the state. Those were all quotes from our speaker.

“Now, on our side, we didn’t take those to be impeachable because we didn’t believe she surely meant that,” Gohmert added. “But by the Democrats taking this action, you’re telling me, ‘No, when we say those, we actually mean to incite violence.’ That’s what this action is saying.

“The first quote Gohmert alluded to from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was uttered in June 2018 amid the national uproar over the Trump administration’s child separation policy among migrant families that was being enforced at the southern border. The second came in August 2020 over the GOP’s opposition to universal mail-in voting ahead of the presidential election.
