(Tea Party PAC) – Rep. Louie Gohmert slammed the House Democrats and their “Animal Farm” impeachment while speaking with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Thursday before the panel ended their night of impeachment debates.
The evening ultimately ended with Chairman Jerry Nadler declaring that the vote would be postponed until Friday morning.
“So, they’ve settled on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, and we’ll see if we get a vote in Committee tonight,” said Kilmeade, who was filling in for Tucker Carlson on his Fox News program Thursday evening, asking Gohmert for his thoughts on “what’s been going on for the last two days.”
“It’s an animal farm, it’s insane, it’s just so outrageous. I’ve sat through some really bad trials, as a judge, but this exceeds anything I’ve ever had to sit through. It is such an outrage,” Gohmert replied.
“It’s so ironic, too, they don’t have a crime, they’ve had to drop every single crime that they’ve alleged,” he added, slamming the Democrats for accusing Trump of abuse of power and obstruction when they are doing exactly this.
“How ironic that today that Joe Biden would say if he were subpoenaed to the Congress or the Senate, he would defy it, he wouldn’t do it,” he said, in reference to the former VP’s statements that he would not comply with any subpoenas from the Senate Judiciary to testify on his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.
“No, I’m not going to let you take the eye off the ball here,” Biden said, according to Delaware Online. “Everybody knows what this is about.”
“That is what this mob is trying to kick out Trump from the White House [for],” Gohmert argued Thursday.
However, he also noted a “silver lining” from the whole farcical impeachment proceeding.
“I try to find some silver lining, no matter how bad it’s been,” he said.
“We’ve known this was a swamp, we’ve known there were swamp creatures. One of the biggest problems here in Washington is figuring out who is part of the deep state, who are the swamp creatures,” he said, citing “Trump Derangement Syndrome” among leftists.
“These guys have been raising their head so we could see who needs to be fired, who needs to be out of the swamp and we found them,” he said.
After Friday morning’s party-line vote by the Judiciary Committee to approve two articles of impeachment against the president, Gohmert scorned the “kangaroo court” and the “outrageous” process by Democrats which he warned, as many have, that this process can now be repeated against any future president.
“This is really a sad day. Big show. Everybody got dressed up, really no place to go,” he said, remarking on the vote of abuse of power which he said existed at the Justice Department, the FBI, the FISA court and even the Department of Defense “was paying money to help set up the president.”
“So there were all kinds of abuses of power. Perhaps none more so than in the House of Representatives by the majority,” Gohmert told reporters in a blistering statement. “This is an outrage. It sets the bar for any president of any party for the future to go through three years of hell like this president had. It’s really unfortunate. This is a sad day for the country.”
