Clyburn Calls Trump’s Conversation With Georgia Election Officials ‘Impeachable’

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) is revisiting the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump over his phone call with Georgia election officials.

CNN’s Jake Tapper noted on Sunday one article of impeachment has been drafted for incitement of insurrection.

He mentioned Clyburn said there could be more than one article and asked him what those could be. Clyburn explained Trump’s conversation with officials in Georgia could not be ignored.

“We heard it. On the phone talking to the secretary of state. In fact, almost ordering him, begging at one time, ordering at the other time, and threatening him with criminal action to overturn the vote, to find him 11,700 some odd votes,” Clyburn said.

He added, “That is impeachable.”

Watch his remarks below:

Clyburn argued the House has a “responsibility” to defend the integrity of the election.

“We tell people all the time that your vote is your voice. Well, our vote is our voice, and we must voice disapproval over what the president did,” Clyburn continued.

According to audio published by The Washington Post last week, Trump called on Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to help him “find votes” to overturn the election, as IJR previously reported.

Clyburn seemingly switched his position on impeaching Trump following the conversation after he said it “would be a waste” of time to pursue impeachment.

“I would hope that the House of Representatives would spend its time concentrating on getting ready for this new administration and getting our House in order, in order to deliver for the American people, so that we can get beyond this pandemic,” Clyburn said during his appearance on CNN’s “New Day.”

Rep. Katherine Clark, the assistant House speaker, told CNN on Friday Democrats could vote on impeachment as early as “mid-next week,” as IJR previously reported.

  1. I say Jim Clyburn is another OLD (80 yrs) politician that should have retired about 15 years ago.

  2. don’t you have better things to do? and you wonder why the Capitol was stormed with this display of pettiness

    1. Poor Bernie. She continues to misdirect what’s going on. “Hey, look over here”. “Look over there”. You are a mountain of nothing but negative nastiness. I’d hate to have to live with you.

  3. This old guy is as senile as Biden. The Dems really feel the power grab in their very bones. Remember this, when they are on the outs and begging to be let back in. Or maybe they are just gonna make America a tin horn dictatorship, censoring everyone who doesn’t agree. The Dems are despicable…they r the root cause of what went down and everybody knows it.

    1. ” The Dems are despicable…they r the root cause of what went down and everybody knows it.” Betsy

      BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

      What is wrong with you, Betsy? Everybody that YOU know, maybe, but the rest of the world has eyes and a brain that works.

      1. Yes, Gen Con, the REST OF US DO KNOW!! democRATS started it al and PRESIDENT TRUMP brought it ALL out in the open!! NASTY bunch of MFers they ALL ARE and the libtard sheep that follow them!!

        1. “Yes, Gen Con, the REST OF US DO KNOW!” Mary

          Do you understand just how myopic you are being here? Do you?

          You don’t get it. If you can’t see past your own tiny environment, how can you expect to see the big picture?

    2. And much worse than Bernie is Betsy Boop who obviously has some major issues with her cognitive ability. She’s every bit as negative and nasty as Bernie.

        1. Well Mareee..your version of the truth is a big ol pile of 💩. Better keep your boots on…

  4. If they only spent as much time on important items. In gour years they did nothing. Now they think in a week something will get done.

    What about Hunter?

    They trying to bury this? A trator?

    An alleged Chinese spy cozied up to a Democratic member of Congress and other politicians for years. The most prominent we know of is Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.).

    1. Robert… Your definition of “important items” includes a laptop from the son of a presidential candidate, which was never proven to exist at claimed repair shop, and no evidence of what was actually in said computer, by a man who owned said repair shop, who disappeared before any proof could be claimed? That’s just golden there Rob. Of course THAT should be much more important than a bunch of trumpist thugs attempting to overthrow democracy.

  5. Funny how the media only posts what agrees with their agenda, i would like to hear the whole phone call, not the 30 seconds the lying liberal media says, just like they say democrats didn’t steal the election, 4 states change voting rules without the state legislators having any say which is against the US constitution, sen Warre and 3 other prominent democrats sent Dominion a letter stating that their software HAD changed votes in the 2018 midterms and had a history of changing votes, 28 states used their software for the 2020 election, THAT constitutes election FRAUD

    1. “i would like to hear the whole phone call, not the 30 seconds the lying liberal media says” Darryll

      I am confused, Darryll.

      Do you need help understanding how to use the Internet, big buddy? We are here for you when you need us.

      Let us know if you learn anything, ‘mkay?

    2. I’m sure Doobie Daryll with 2 whole L’s, that even if you had heard the entire recording, your closed mindedness would have come to the same result. 😉

  6. What wave of total BS from this crowd of armchair, obviously illiterate trumpturds! Do you guys actually read or watch anything that doesn’t skew far right conspiracies?? It’s a waste of my time to try correct all your false statements. Our country will never come together when so many believe in things that just aren’t true.

  7. I think by 2024, America will know that the 2020 Election was flawed with Fraud and those involved will be prosecuted.

    1. I am confused, Ron.

      What happens by 2024 by which time your predictions do NOT come true? Will you come back to this comment and admit that you shot your mouth off prematurely and that you made a mistake?

  8. Another impeachment by ‘interpretation’ of a phone call. If they can’t find the right phrase or words, they’ll make them up. 4 years of attempting to remove Trump, still at it. If you want to impeach anyone, impeach the entire Democrat party from Congress. They have wasted 4 years and $millions of taxpayer money to gain power. Cheating? Perhaps they should look into how Biden gained just enough votes to pull ahead, in the middle of the night, when the swing states had stopped counting and the polls were closed. Look into that. Where did they ‘find’ those votes. Lying, cheating, corrupt Democrats. The real reason they want to impeach Trump is so they won’t have to worry about him in 2024 after they totally screw up America in the next 4 years. Remove a candidate and future threat by any means possible.

    1. “The real reason they want to impeach Trump is so they won’t have to worry about him in 2024 after they totally screw up America in the next 4 years.” Chuck

      BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We don’t have to ever worry about THAT being possible. This guy is gone, gone, gone! Good riddance, too!

      “They have wasted 4 years and $millions of taxpayer money to gain power.” Chuck

      I don’t understand people like you. The old Republicans went after Hillary Clinton 9 times over 4 deaths and found absolutely NOTHING with which they could charge her. How many millions were spent on NOTHING? You don’t care how much investigations cost. You just don’t. You are only expressing faux outrage against people from the Other Party. You don’t care if Your Party does it. Right, Chuck?

      “Perhaps they should look into how Biden gained just enough votes to pull ahead, in the middle of the night, when the swing states had stopped counting and the polls were closed. Look into that. Where did they ‘find’ those votes.” Chuck

      Perhaps not. If you can’t recognize a legitimate election when you see one, why should you even be allowed to ever vote again? Explain THAT, Chuck!

  9. It is not illegal to ask someone to find votes that you are due, he is not asking to make fraud votes, he is asking to find the 400,000 , votes he was cheated out of, of course these bastards twist and lie because they are already guilty of treason and know he is coming for them. put your hats on tight kids , the storm is here, my guess he will declare martial law and use the insurrection act of 1807 and start cleaning house

    1. If anybody cheated anyone out any votes, it was that dummy in the Oval Office who has no idea what he was doing?

      According to the numbers, if he had expressed the least amount of concern about a deadly pandemic, at the beginning, we would not be having over 4,000 Americans die every day from it. That was on him. He COULD HAVE easily won if he had shown any competence or concern for you and me. Easily.

      If the incumbent dummy knew how to run a campaign, he would have fought in the same way real leaders in OTHER countries, to protect and support us properly. He chose not to.

      I won’t entertain the idea that his royal loss was the fault of anyone else but his own. He was stupid, incompetent, and dangerous to our survival and wellbeing, and he is now paying the price for it. Right, Jay?

    2. PROOF Jay. Where’s your proof of these mysterious 400,000 votes that “he was cheated out of”. That’s no way to win a case there Big J. I hope to god you’re not an attorney. You’d be laughter out of the courtroom. Haha

    3. Jay, I listened to the entire call between Trump and Raffensperger. Trump was using every trick in his bag to get Raffensperger to go his way and Raffensperger had an answer to his question every time. Trump isn’t due anything except handcuffs and a jail cell. How many times and how many ways do the votes need to be counted. Trump even gave Raffensperger an excuse to use : ” You can just say it was a miscalculation”. Trumpers are done……bye bye

  10. Clyburn needs to clean up the Democratic party before throwing mud on anyone or anything else.
