Emotional congressmen were moved to tears during Pelosi’s hearing on the January 6 Capitol breach.
Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff became “visibly emotional” after hearing an officer testify about the riot.
Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger also “broke down in tears,” reports add.
Schiff said, “I’d like to think, as Amanda Gorman so eloquently said, that we’re not broken — we’re just unfinished.”
Schiff continued, “Because if we’re no longer committed to a peaceful transfer of power after our elections if our side doesn’t win, then God help us.”
“We deem elections illegitimate merely because they don’t go our way rather than trying to do better the next time, then God help us,” Schiff added. “And if we’re so driven by bigotry and hate that we attack our fellow citizens as traitors if they were born in another country or they don’t look like us.”
At this moment, Schiff began to cry. He concluded, “Then God help us. But I have faith because of folks like you. I didn’t expect this would be emotional either. It must be an Adam thing today.”
Kinzinger also openly cried. He said, “I never expected today to be quite as emotional for me as it has been.”
“I’ve talked to a number of you and gotten to know you,” Kinzinger continued. I think it’s important to tell you right now, though: You guys may, like, individually, feel a little broken. … But you guys won. You guys held.”
TRENDING 👇 Liz Cheney Gets Embarrassed With New Nickname
Liz Cheney has been labeled a trader following her decision to turn on Trump and vote to impeach him.
Cheney says she believes some Republicans are “shameful.” Cheney explains further that she thinks Republicans are denying Donald Trump’s responsibility for the January 6 Capitol riot.
Now New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik has a new nickname for Cheney. According to Stefanik, Rep. Liz Cheney is working as a “Pelosi pawn” since she joined Pelosi’s Jan. 6 committee. The committee has been heavily criticized as an extremely partisan attempt to cherrypick the facts leading up to the events on Jan. 6th at the Capitol.
“And when it comes to Liz Cheney, she is a Pelosi Republican, a Pelosi pawn at this point,” Stefanik said. “She does not represent the Republican conference, or Republican voters or the American people. Pelosi bears responsibility because we know that as early as December, there was information and intelligence that there were potential security threats and that the Capitol was not going to be secure on January 6,” she said.
“Nancy Pelosi refused to act. We also know that on January 6, Nancy Pelosi was passed a note by the sergeant-at-arms, her political appointee, asking for her permission to bring in the National Guard. She hesitated,” Stefanik added.
