WATCH: Top Dem Laughed At For Saying His Party “Did Not Wish” to Impeach Trump

Not everyone is buying the Democrat’s narrative of being “solemn” over impeaching President Trump.

DailyCaller reports House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer drew laughter and jeers from Republican lawmakers after he said Democrats “did not wish” to impeach President Donald Trump.

Hoyer, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the House, spoke shortly before the House voted to impeach the president. “Democrats did not choose this impeachment. We did not wish for it,” he said.

A Republican lawmaker interrupted the Maryland Democrat and shouted: “Oh, come on!” Other Republicans in the chamber laughed at Hoyer’s assertion, with some booing it as well.


One Democrat who didn’t hesitate to show how she really felt about impeachment was Rashida Tlaib, who posted a gleeful video and photo with Maxine Waters.
