Nancy Pelosi wears same black outfit she did for Trump's first impeachment, calls POTUS ‘clear and present danger'
Nancy Pelosi wore the same outfit that she did during the first impeachment vote against President Donald Trump, her office confirmed
The House convened on Tuesday to vote on the article of impeachment against President Donald Trump for incitement of an insurrection. This was in lieu of the Capitol riots that had taken place earlier in the month and the president's inaction in curbing his supporters has led to a call for action. This also happens to be the second time that the president is facing an impeachment trial, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has used this opportunity to once again share her thoughts about the president. Also, to stress how she supports Trump being impeached, she donned the same dress that she had worn during the first impeachment days.
At the two hour debate that convened in the house before the vote that was expected to take place on Tuesday, Pelosi said about the riots, "Those insurrectionists were not patriots. They were not part of a political base to be catered to and managed. They were domestic terrorists and justice must prevail." She added, "But they did not appear out of a vacuum. They were sent here, sent here by the President with words such as a cry 'to fight like hell.' Words matter. Truth matters. Accountability matters."
Speaking about President Trump, she said that he is "a clear and present danger" and added, "We know that the President of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country. He must go, he is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love."
She also pointed out how Trump has repeatedly lied about the outcome of the elections that took place in November to cast doubts in the minds of Americans thereby casting doubts on democracy. She also claimed that the charges were not motivated by partisanship and explained, "This is not theoretical and this is not motivated by partisanship," adding, "We here in this House have a sacred obligation to stand for truth."
Social media users also noticed how the House Speaker wore the same dress that she did during the first impeachment vote and Pelosi's office also confirmed to NBC that the outfit is the same as the one that she had worn the first time the House voted to impeach President Trump back on December 18, 2019.
A final vote on whether to impeach the president is expected to take place at 3 pm ET.
