Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, calls last week's Capitol Hill riot "a tragedy," but said he hopes House Democrats will not move forward with impeachment because it will further divide the county, Sunday during an interview with FNC's Maria Bartiromo.
JORDAN: Well, I mean, first of all, what happened Wednesday is a tragedy. Everyone knows that. It is as wrong as wrong can be.
But I hope the Democrats don't go down this road. We don't know if they're going to. Let's hope that they do not do that; 75 million Americans who supported the president have been called deplorables who eat at the Olive Garden. Remember what Peter Strzok said when he was at the Walmart several years ago. He said that he could smell the Trump supporters here.
Now -- now the Democrats are going to try to remove the president from office just seven days before he is set to leave anyway? I do not see how that unifies the country.
I hope what happens is what Senator Graham said Friday night on this network, when he asked Vice President Joe Biden, president-elect Joe Biden, to give a speech to the country and say, we should not be pursuing this impeachment. We should not be pursuing the -- this 25th Amendment. Let's bring the country together and move forward and return to being this -- America, the greatest nation ever. That's where we need to focus.
