Booker to GOP Senators: ‘History Has Its Eyes on Us’

January 20, 2020

Sen. Cory Booker argued Sunday on ABC’s This Week that senators should not “cave to partisanship and tribalism” in the impeachment trial of President Trump.

“We have a president that is cooperating or leveraging, working with foreign powers to try to undermine the fairness of an election,” Booker said. “We need to act… This is a moment for us to get out of our partisan corners and to look at the long arc of history, and this incredible experiment with democracy that’s been going on for a couple of centuries plus right now.

“History has its eyes on us. How are we going to operate? We cannot cave to partisanship and tribalism that’s destroying our nation. In this moment, we’ve got to let our highest selves come through and sit in those seats and uphold the oath we all just swore last week and do right by our nation to ensure that this democracy endures,” he added.

A Democrat lecturing the GOP about partisanship and tribalism in this highly partisan impeachment sham is the height of hypocrisy.
