Dems' fighting words! Trumpers expose impeachment managers

Members of the impeachment team assembled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi against former President Trump argued on Wednesday that his rhetoric about “fighting” provoked rioters to break into and vandalize the Capitol on Jan. 6.

But even as they were making their charges, the Trump War Room was putting them on the spot, posting the “fight” words that the Democrats themselves have used.

For example, impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said in an interview he would “fight like hell.”

It was to urge his social media followers to take action after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died last year.

He also said, in 2017, he would “fight like hell for liberal democracy.” And during the Russian-collusion investigation, he said, “This is our democracy – fight for it.”

For his part, Trump said to his rally attendees they should “fight like hell” for their country.

Fox News said the Trump campaign account “turned the tables” on the Democrats, who are not expected to get enough votes to convict Trump of inciting insurrection, as claimed by Pelosi in an article that was supported by no witnesses and no evidence in the House.

Similarly, Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Colo., who mischaracterized a constitutional scholar’s opinion on impeachment on Tuesday, talked about his “fight to take back Congress.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., who had a relationship with a Chinese spy, also came in for criticism.

Rep. Ted Lieu was cited for having promised to “fight back.”

Significantly, the Democrats’ video of statements by President Trump during the Jan. 6 rally left out him saying, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
