Oklahoma GOP Congressman Seeks To Have Trump’s Second Impeachment Expunged  

An Oklahoma congressman was set on Wednesday to introduce a resolution expunging former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment.

Trump was impeached following the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol. Ten Republicans joined all Democrats in voting to impeach Trump a second time. He was acquitted in the Senate.

Rep. Markwayne Mullin, though, wants history to exonerate Trump.

According to the Washington Examiner, his resolution would clear Trump because of the “rabid partisanship the Democrats displayed in exercising one of the most grave and consequential powers with which the House is charged.”

In an interview, he told the Examiner, “The second impeachment of President Trump was just as much a sham as the first. Impeachment is the gravest of charges, and the liberals themselves showed us how unserious they were in their blind urgency to act.”

The Hill reported that Mullin’s bill argues that the second impeachment indictment of Trump “contains a subjective account of that which transpired at the Capitol on January 6, 2021,” while it also “omits any discussion of the circumstances, unusual voting patterns, and voting anomalies of the 2020 Presidential election itself.”

As the Examiner noted, “Mullin used the resolution to address grievances over the 2020 election, noting that Trump won 18 of the 19 bellwether counties that have in the past corresponded with the victor of the presidential election.”

The resolution points out that Trump also received more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016.

Finally, as The Hill observed, Mullin’s resolution pointed out that “Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts did not preside over the Senate impeachment trial,” which in the language of the bill was “perfecting the entirety of the process as nothing more than an unconstitutional exercise in futility, moot, and fantastical political theater.”

Two months ago Mullin also introduced a bill trying to get Trump’s first impeachment expunged.

Democrats accused Trump in 2019 of trying to leverage U.S. military aid to Ukraine to get that nation to investigate Joe Biden, who was then emerging as the Democratic frontrunner for 2020.

Yet a transcript of the call made clear that Trump wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to root out all corruption in his government.

Mullin, in March, called that impeachment “an unimaginable abuse of our Constitution.”

Trump, he said in a statement at the time, “was impeached over a sabotaged, perfect phone call.”

“The hearsay of witnesses completely contradicted the plain text of the transcript. Facts did not matter, and Democrats in the House impeached President Donald J. Trump, nevertheless. Now, we have Joe Biden stoking international crises with public comments surrounding the same nation. And Democrats in Congress remain predictably speechless.”
