The news is out: [A Republican legislator from the US state of South Carolina has been censured by the state branch of the party after he voted to impeach former United States President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Congressman Tom Rice was one of 10 Republicans in the US House of Representatives who voted in favour of impeaching Trump on January 13 for “incitement of insurrection” concerning the deadly riot at the US Capitol this month.
On Saturday, the South Carolina Republican Party (SCGOP) said it had formally censured Rice for his vote.
“We made our disappointment clear the night of the impeachment vote,” SCGOP Chairman Drew McKissick said in a statement shared on social media, about the symbolic rebuke.
“Trying to impeach a president, with a week left in his term, is never legitimate and is nothing more than a political kick on the way out the door.”]
The American people saw what happened for the 4 years preceding January 6th, 2021. It’s clear, evident, and all the drugs and hard liquor in the world could not produce the level of stupidity required to un-see these events and defecate on the Constitution. Let Trump be Trump is not the law of the land.
