 22 Fmr Republicans Demand Dems Impeach Trump, Ban Him From 2024 Run
Posted January 13, 2021

Nearly two dozen former Republican lawmakers are calling for their current party members to support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

A whopping twenty-two former Republican members of Congress wrote a letter to current GOP lawmakers on Monday saying that supporting the removal of the president would "fulfill your constitutional duty to uphold the integrity of the legislative branch and protect American democracy."

The latest impeachment push comes after people stormed the U.S. Capitol last week, which resulted in several deaths, arrests, and the Capitol being locked down.

"There is no excuse for nor a defense of a President of the United States to actively orchestrate an insurrection on a separate but co-equal branch of government. Surely, the Founders would be sickened by the thought of such actions," they wrote. "As members of the branch that was under attack—not just politically but physically—you must remove the president from office. Congress must send a strong and clear message not just to this president but for future presidents that this type of behavior will not be tolerated or accepted."

"While President Trump is scheduled to leave office on January 20, Congress should still stand up for itself and the Constitution," they argued. "Knowing the president will be leaving office in less than two weeks should not be an excuse for not impeaching. In fact, the House of Representatives could still impeach President Trump after he leaves office. Doing so could help pave the way to prevent him from serving in any other federal elective or appointive office."

The former Republicans who signed the letter are:

    Mary Bono from California
    Tom Campbell from California
    Rodney Chandler from Washington
    Tom Coleman from Missouri
    Barbara Comstock from Virginia
    Charlie Dent from Pennsylvania
    Charles Djou from Hawaii
    Wayne Gilchrest from Maryland
    James Greenwood from Pennsylvania
    Bob Inglis from South Carolina
    David Jolly from Florida
    Steven Kuykendall from California
    John LeBoutillier from New York
    Mike Parker from Mississippi
    Claudine Schneider from Rhode Island
    Joe Schwarz from Michigan
    Peter Smith from Vermont
    Alan Steelman from Texas
    Peter Torkildsen from Massachusetts
    Sen. David Durenberger from Minnesota
    Sen. Gordon Humphrey from New Hampshire
