@SpeakerPelosi opens debate on impeaching President Trump: "We know that the president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common county. He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love."
@RepJerryNadler takes the floor and says "we all saw it coming."

"We have a duty to observe, Madam Speaker that racism played a direct role in this incitement."
"The Democrats have won everything in sight. The House, the Senate and the presidency. In a republic that calls for magnanimity by the victors. Only in a banana republic, does it call for vengeance," says @RepMcClintock as House debate on impeachment continues.
@RepAdamSchiff who led the first House impeachment of President Trump takes the floor again, but keeps it brief.

"Let us say, enough. Enough."
@CedricRichmond, in his last speech on the House floor before he takes on his role in the Biden administration, asks his colleagues to "stand up, man up, woman up and defend this Constitution from all enemies ... including Donald J. Trump."

"Richmond out," he concludes.
"This president's refusal to participate in the peaceful transfer of power and his role in the incitement of last week's violence pose an existential threat to our constitutional democracy," says @WhipClyburn

"This threat must be extinguished immediately."
Lead impeachment manager, @RepRaskin reads Rep. Liz Cheney's (R-Wyo.) statement on the House floor, asks his colleagues to "read Ms. Cheney's statement. Let's come together and impeach the president for this high crime against the republic."
@GOPLeader takes the floor, says the "violent mob that descended upon this body, was neither peaceful nor democratic."

"Some say the riots were caused by antifa. There is absolutely no evidence of that. And conservatives should be the first to say so."
"I believe impeaching the president in such a short time frame will be a mistake," says @GOPLeader, adding that the Senate has confirmed that no trial will begin until after President-elect Biden is sworn in.
@GOPLeader: "This doesn't mean the president is free from fault. The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding."
@RepNewhouse becomes the 6th Republican to support the second impeachment of President Trump.

"There is no excuse for President Trump's actions. ... That is why with a heavy heart and clear resolve I will vote yes on these articles of impeachment," he says on the House floor.
Applause for Capitol Police officers as @SteveScaliseGOP speaks on the House floor.

"My prayers still for Officers Sicknick and Liebengood, who we lost as well as all of the other Capitol police officers who risked their lives to keep us safe. They are true heroes."
@LeaderHoyer quotes Rep. Cheney's (R-Wyo.) statement supporting impeachment in closing remarks for Democrats in House impeachment debate.
