Wallace noted that Pelosi was criticized by Democrats and Republicans after she distributed special pens following the signing of the articles of impeachment.
After he played a montage of pictures from the signing ceremony for the articles of impeachment, he noted, “As we can see from these pictures here, all of these participants look pretty happy.”
“Doesn’t that blow a hole in your narrative that the Democrats aren’t enjoying the impeachment and the effort to remove this President?” he asked.

“I was at that ceremony, and there was no joy in that ceremony,” Jeffries began to respond.
Before he could finish his response, Wallace interjected, “We just saw the pictures, congressman.”
“There was no joy in that ceremony,” Jeffries reiterated before noting Democrats have worked with Trump to pass legislation, “We don’t dislike this president. We worked with this president on criminal justice reform.”
“We don’t dislike Donald Trump. But we do love America. We do love democracy. We do love the Constitution. And in America, no one is above the law — not even the President of the United States.”
Jeffries’ comments come after Pelosi received criticism for handing out pens — with her signature emblazoned in gold on them — to House Democrats after she signed the articles of impeachment and sent them to the Senate, as IJR has previously reported.
