A Republican from Colorado rejected the president’s second impeachment and accused her political opponents of spreading baloney.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) categorically dismissed the Democratic Party’s latest bid to remove President Trump from office again while, at the same time, accusing party members of inciting hatred.
“I rise today to oppose this impeachment and denounce the recent violence on the Capitol, just as I opposed the previous impeachment and the violence we have all witnessed all summer long across our great country,” she said in a video shared on YouTube.
Boebert said House Democrats acted utterly contrary to their so-called political belief in unity while they were “encouraging and normalizing violence.”
“When I hear the Democrats demanding unity; sadly, they are only unified in hate,” she said. “Make no mistake here; the hypocrisy of the left is on full display.”
Boebert accused the Democrats of directing extreme protesters to storm the Capitol building and remove the president by force on Jan. 6.
“Go and take Trump out tonight,’ [does this] sound familiar?'” she said. “Go over the hill [Democrats said], get in the face of some congresspeople, we have got to fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, take them behind the gym and beat the hell out of them.”
She believes radical party members must face the consequences of their nonsensical actions.
“Where is the accountability for the left?” she said. “Rather than actually helping American people in this time, we start impeachments that further divide our country. I call [it] bull-crap.”
Capitol Police recently informed Boebert that no law or regulation would prevent her from carrying her favorite Glock semi-automatic pistol into the Capitol building.
“There is no standing requirement [that lawmakers notify them when they carry a firearm in the Capitol],” Capitol Police said in a statement obtained by The Associated Press.
The agency revealed she would only be required to find a safe place to store the weapon and cannot legally bring it into the House chamber or other nearby areas.
“That responsibility resides with the member,” Capitol Police said.
The remarks came after the newly elected representative enquired at the agency, whether it is acceptable for her to carry her weapon on her person while visiting Capitol Hill.
The question was based on the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, which declares a “well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” according to the Legal Information Institute website.
