Demanding the House punish Republicans who stormed witness deposition

Approximately two dozen white male Republican Congressmen just stormed "in to a secure facility during a closed-door witness deposition and refusing to leave until Democrats held open hearings." They are trying to impede the impeachment inquiry and risked national security in doing so by bringing in their unapproved electronic devices. These members of Congress including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and others should be immediately investigated and have their security privileges revoked for intentionally disrupting a deposition and breaking security protocols to push their partisan agenda.

Why is this important?

The hypocrisy of a group of men who wanted to lock Hillary up for using a private email server compromising national security to defend a lawless president is insufferable. It's time for decent people to take a stand against such shameless disregard for the legal process and take our country back from far-right radicals holding our democracy hostage. These lawmakers must be held accountable for breaking House rules and violating national security protocol. Nobody is above the law!

Reasons for signing

  • At the very least, there should be official reprimands for a stunt that included violating security laws.
  • Continuing to flaunt their ability to dismiss the legitimacy of law to suit their own headline-grabbing politics of division.
  • I am ashamed that my fellow Louisianan voters support him.
