Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert Slams Ocasio-Cortez for Defending Looters

Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert Slams AOC for Impeaching Trump

(RepublicanDaily.org) – The House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump on Wednesday, January 13, turning the matter over to the Senate for consideration. House Democrats pushed this move despite the fact that Trump’s first term in office is scheduled to end before Senate hearings even begin. And one GOP congresswoman was not going to watch it happen without calling out the hypocritical Left, including one of the loudest members of the House.

The absurdity of the process did not go unnoticed. During the House debate on Wednesday, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) launched a scathing attack on the Democrat lawmakers who put forward the article of impeachment.

She highlighted the fact Liberal commentators had gone unpunished in the past despite using language similar to that which Trump was impeached for. She also singled out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for defending the actions of looters during last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests. She mocked the Democratic rep. for saying people were looting for food. The Republican laughed and wondered when electronic stores began making baked goods.

In order for Donald Trump to actually be removed from office by way of impeachment, a two-thirds majority is required in the Senate. This means at least 17 Republicans would have to vote in favor of the motion. With the Senate not reconvening before January 19, it’s unlikely that we’ll see results before the end of the president’s term.
