dividing our nation by calling for the invocation of the 25th amendment by the vice president let's consider this for a moment. my democratic colleagues are demanding vice president pence invoke the 25th amendment and take over as president with these calls it is clear they have full faith in the vice president and his ability to act in a manner that is consistent with his constitutional responsibility simply put they trust him to do the job the at the very demand they are making insinuates that the vice president pence cannot be trusted to make the decision to invoke the 25th amendment on his own it calls into question the core of his judgment if you trust someone to lead the nation and be the acting

2:51 am
many of my colleagues in the call for unity and a peaceful transition of power i say this as a believer in the constitution and the fact that the election has been certified 1st the incitement of politically motivated violence that we saw last week is intolerable words have consequences and yes the president could have done more but i ask you this doesn't everybody need to play by the same rules so let me highlight some other questionable statements and i quote let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant in a department store in a gas station you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they're not welcome anymore anywhere that was not president trump let me give you another one i just don't even

2:53 am
from pennsylvania is recognized or just suggested sedition is in her defenses and it's difficult to unify before there's accountability mr speaker i would hear 2 and a half minutes since the gentleman from new york mr swanson jemma from new york is recognized for 2 and a half minutes mr speaker i supported cooking the 25th amendment to remove remove president trunk from office former congressman tom lantos a holocaust survivor would often say the veneer of civilization is paper thin we are its guardians and we cannot rest i was sitting right there on wednesday when they told us to take out our gas masks because the rioters had breached the capitol and i was standing right over there as the capitol police locked in barricaded the chamber doors and i heard what i thought were gunshots as the
2:54 am
rioters broke the windows on the main chamber door with a metal pipe and i was standing right over there when the woman was shot outside the speaker's lobby and the police radios rang out shots fired in the capitol shots fired in the capitol everyone down the veneer of civilization is paper thin thousands of people criminals desecrated our capitol breaking windows and doors attacking our brave officers and vandalizing offices rioters wearing army fatigues we have confederate and trump flags don did not see swat stick is and i saw one man who wore a shirt saying camp auschwitz staff are president instigated this. the president's duty is to protect our republic and its people he built the mob
2:55 am
filled with lies and encourage its fight to stop the steel now we hear intelligence reports that thousands of armed militias and white supremacists are planning to come again on or before january 20th my colleagues my friends on the other side of the aisle we must together call upon the president to denounce this violence to tell his supporters to stay home mr president you must please put america 1st you must call off this attack and if not you must be removed and i yield back down from new york we'll gentleman from pennsylvania reserves members are in mind refrain from engaging in personality against the president gentleman from oklahoma is recognized thank you very much for speaker mr speaker i yield 2 minutes to my very good friend the gentleman from
2:56 am
pennsylvania mr rushton thrower who through newest republican member of the rules committee gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized for 2 minutes you mr speaker let me be clear about something the violence and the rioting and our capitol last wednesday was tragic it was undemocratic it was unacceptable i unequivocally condemn this criminal behavior that occur at that occurred in this building. a great nation is deeply divided and unfortunately rather than looking forward and working together on issues that actually unite our country we're here to baiting a partisan issue a partisan resolution that will only further divide us the constitution is very clear on the if she were debating. the ability to activate section 4 of the 25th amendment lies with the vice president and cabinet members cabinet members who are
2:57 am
vetted and confirmed by the senate congresses only drawn in house members are only drawn in when the president disputes a declaration of incapacitation that's not what is happening here we should respect that constitutional progressives mr speaker i'm also perplexed by my democrat colleagues attempt to force the hand of a man they clearly have faith in our country they must recognize that by calling for the president's immediate resignation they're also advocating for vice president mike pence to lead our nation so therefore they should have the full trust in vice president pence's decision making and ability to act in a manner consistent with his constitutional responsibilities just as he did last week. further i'm incredibly and deeply disappointed that the role before us suspends prohibitions on engaging and personalities against
2:58 am
the president it's somewhat ironic if we are truly worried about rhetoric then we must set an example and ensure that civility and decorum remain an essential part. of his writing as for an additional 30 seconds. mr speaker we must set an example and ensure that civility and decorum remain an essential part of the american discourse with that i thank you i yield back general yield gentleman from oklahoma reserve gentlewoman from france a very is recognized. thank you just to clarify this provision about suspending the rule about personalities is so that we can have a full and frank discussion of just why the request is being made to invoke the 25th amendment and just why this president should be impeached it would be difficult if not impossible to describe the high crimes and misdemeanors and other
2:59 am
misconduct which forms the basis of those conver of those requests if that rule were not suspended and you know as i mentioned in my opening. view this is a partisan resolution we have members from all sides of the political spectrum now calling for the removal of this president members might want to check their news feed to see the growing list of civic business and religious leaders from across the country who've said enough is the nothing this president is a clear and present danger and with that i would reserve. general and from france very reserved gentleman from oklahoma is recognized. thank you very much for speaker i do disagree somewhat with my good friend from pennsylvania i've had the privilege of being in this body for many years and i have never seen what we see in this section 2 and 3 of this rule and the suspension of appropriate language and i
3:00 am
understand the difficulties of dealing with this issue. and respect that however in a time when the rhetoric has been over the top i think we should set a high sample we've never done this before in my time here we didn't do it in previous impeachment the need to do it now is lost on me mr speaker so i would hope i get i have great confidence in my friend i have great conflict my friends on the rules committee and so you know the rules the rules this will almost certainly pass i would just hope that everybody acts as a as good as they can i mean i'd hate to put it that simply but this is an important issue i respect all the members of this body i know there are have very different points of view on this that's to be expected generally our debates professional generally that standard is something we're proud of and something that we.
