House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) is using congressional Democrats’ own words against them in regards to impeachment.
House Democrats formally announced they’d be launching an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump on Tuesday evening — after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tried to wrangle in her Democratic colleagues on Trump’s impeachment prior.
“Their hypocrisy is unbelievable,” Scalise wrote on Twitter, along with a video revealing what several top Democrats have had to say about impeachment in the past.
Listing what some Democrats have previously said, the Republican lawmaker noted that they previously suggested that “impeachment supporters are driven by hatred.”
In contrast, Scalise called some of the Democratic congressmembers for their recent comments, claiming they’re “filled with hatred of [Donald Trump].”
The video shows Pelosi previously claiming that the House Republicans are “paralyzed with hatred” of former President Bill Clinton. She added that the U.S. would continue to “suffer” until Republicans “free themselves of this hatred.”
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is heard also suggesting Republican lawmakers are “driven by hatred.”
“No impeachment should proceed without bipartisan support,” Nadler is heard saying, adding, “Impeachment of a president is an undoing of a national election. … [Republicans] are telling us that our votes don’t count.”
Watch the video below:
Dems said then:
– Impeachment=undoing an election
– Impeachment must be bipartisan
– Impeachment supporters are driven by hatred
– Trying to undo the 2016 election
– Have no bipartisan support
– Filled with hatred of @realDonaldTrump

“Democrats’ hatred of President Trump blinds them to the facts of the case, and they cannot be trusted to tell the truth as they continue to pursue their impeachment-at-all-costs strategy,” Scalise wrote in a press release, continuing to blast Democrats for their impeachment push.
