WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) joined Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC to discuss the House impeaching Donald Trump for a second time:
 
“I tried to appeal to Republican Members that this was not about Donald Trump or the House or Democrats or Republicans... Will we allow conduct which led to an attack on the Congress of the United States? ... Donald Trump, to the very end, refused to accept the truth and told his supporters, his rabid supporters that the election was being stolen, and then he told them to go down to the Capitol and stop it. That's what they tried to do. It was essentially a seditious action to try to take over and set aside the government of the United States... So we took the action we thought was necessary. We think it was justified by the conduct.”
 
“It's a sad thing because this President has created this atmosphere of violence and grievance that folks have and tragically on the 6th, on Wednesday, that manifested itself as an attack on the Congress of the United States.”
