“I never would have believed I would be standing here talking about impeachment of a President of the United States,” Congresswoman Debbie Lesko from Arizona said Wednesday on the House floor.
Lesko, who serves on both the Judiciary and Rules Committees, said she has “spent hours, and hours, and hours reading transcripts, looking at documents, hearing testimony. And I can tell you one thing: I believe this is the most unfair, politically biased, rigged process that I have seen in my entire life.”
If you watch nothing else today, take a few minutes to watch @RepDLesko on the House Floor from just a few minutes ago.

She continued: “here are the facts. There is no proof, none, that the President has committed an impeachable offense. Not one of the Democrat witnesses – not one – was able to establish that the President committed bribery, treason, or high crimes and misdemeanors as required by the U.S. Constitution.”
“As I’ve said before, the Democrats are really undermining their own argument here. Because seventeen out of the twenty-four Democrat members on the Judiciary Committee voted here on this floor to move forward articles of impeachment on July 17th of this year, before President Trump’s call even took place. And five out of the nine Rules Committee members that are Democrats did the same thing.”
She emphasized: “If your argument is that this phone call is the main reason for this impeachable offense, why did you vote for moving impeachment froward before the call even took place?”
Representative Andy Biggs took to Twitter to give high praise to his colleague from Arizona, saying: “if you watch nothing else today, take a few minutes to watch @RepDLesko on the House Floor.”
