Freshman House Democrat Introduces Resolution to Investigate, Expel Seditious Republicans
Freshman Representative Cori Bush (D-MO has introduced a resolution to investigate and potentially expel House Republicans who have contested the congressional certification of President-Elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory, which was disrupted when a stampede of domestic terrorists sieged and occupied the United States Capitol on Wednesday.
More than 150 GOP lawmakers – including 14 Senators – have signed onto President Donald Trump’s coup to overturn the 2020 election.
The mass act of insurrection began after Trump held a “Stop the Steal” rally on the National Mall.
“I believe the Republican members of Congress who have incited this domestic terror attack through their attempts to overturn the election must face consequences,” Bush tweeted on Wednesday afternoon. “They have broken their sacred Oath of Office. I will be introducing a resolution calling for their expulsion.”

The directive asks the House Committees on House Administration and Ethics to “investigate, and to issue a report on, whether those Members of the House who have sought to overturn the 2020 Presidential election have violated their oath of office to uphold the Constitution or the Rules of the House of Representatives, and should face sanction, including removal from the House of Representatives.”
