'Correcting History': Movement Grows In Congress To Set The Record Straight On 45's Impeachment

House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik and over two dozen colleagues are backing a resolution to “expunge” former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment – as pro-Trump Republicans push to rally voters before the midterms.

Rep. Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., is leading the resolution, which would apply to Trump’s 2021 impeachment in the wake of the assault on the Capitol by a mob of Trump followers. It’s similar to Mullin's previous resolution on Trump’s first impeachment, which concerned him supposedly withholding military assistance from Ukraine in exchange for political favors.

The Daily Beast first reported on the existence of the more recent resolution. Yet the backing for it by Stefanik and other Republicans, including House GOP Conference Vice-Chair Mike Johnson, R-La., was not revealed until Wednesday. And although it will not pass the Democrat-controlled House, it underscores Republicans’ continued backing for Trump almost 16 months after he left office.

“Democrats used their second impeachment resolution to once again weaponize one of the gravest and consequential powers of the House,” Mullin announced in a statement. “This was never about the Constitution; it was rooted in personal politics.”

“The American people know Democrats weaponized the power of impeachment against President Donald Trump to advance their own extreme political agenda,” Stefanik, R-N.Y., explained to Fox News Digital.

“From the beginning of this sham process, I stood up against Nancy Pelosi’s blatant attempt to shred the Constitution as House Democrats ignored precedent and failed to follow the legislative process,” Stefanik went on. “But President Donald Trump was rightfully acquitted, and it is past time to expunge Democrats’ sham smear against not only President Trump’s name but against millions of patriots across the country.”

Mullin’s resolution rehashes many grievances Trump and other Republicans have regarding the 2020 election, including recounts and mail ballots.

It rails against the articles of impeachment themselves. One line claims that “Article I of the Resolution cites two quotes from President Trump’s January 6, 2021, speech on the Ellipse that lack any context, and are viewed in a light most unfavorable to the President.” The resolution further makes process complaints regarding the lack of an “evidentiary hearing” and “no witnesses were heard.”

The resolution stands almost no chance of advancing in the Democrat-controlled House. If passed, the resolution states it would make it as if the impeachment article “had never passed the House of Representatives.”

“Liberals couldn’t see through their blind rage long enough to follow parliamentary procedure, and instead barreled through Congress to have one more bite at the apple with President Trump,” announced Mullin, who helped barricade rioters outside the House chamber during the January 6 attack.
