House Dems Pushing Bill To Make Sure Not ‘Even A Bench’ Is Named After President Trump
Two Democrats in the House of Representatives, Linda T. Sanchez (D-CA) and Joaquin Castro (D-TX) are putting a bill together to make sure President Donald Trump is not memorialized in any way.
“I am working on a bill that would mean that nothing — not even a bench, no airport, no highway, no school, nothing — ever bear the name of this traitor,” California congresswoman Linda Sánchez told People magazine on Monday. After describing her experience during the January 6 Capitol riots, she explained that she wanted to hold people accountable, “[starting] with the President because he invited people to the Capitol, and he incited them.”
Sanchez also believes the President should be impeached, “Given that those around Trump have never stood up to him, I have a hard time believing that they will meet this moment with the, with the appropriate response,” she said. “So we have also, I have also, signed on to articles of impeachment to try to remove him.”
Texas Democrat Joaquin Castro announced his support for impeaching the President and legislation to make sure nothing is named after President Trump.
President Trump incited an insurrection that damaged some our nation’s most significant and sacred federal property.
Most importantly – let us learn from our past.
Donald Trump should never become a future generation’s confederate symbol. 2/2

Now, Independent journalist, Glenn Greenwald because he was fired after he wrote a negative story about Joe Biden during the election is warning the media is going to go after conservatives.
This was always the post-Trump plan. https://t.co/JWZVbsCZXZ

Greenwald’s suspicions are correct, here is what New York Times writer and author of the 1619 project, Nikole Hannah Jones had to say.
