Freshman Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI) on Monday called on President Donald Trump to resign and said he is considering supporting a second impeachment of the president in the wake of last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol.
Meijer told WOOD-TV:
What we saw on that day, especially between noon and 4:17 p.m., when the president put out his tweet, gently telling people there to go home but also saying we love you, you’re special – To me that was disqualifying. He said that while we were in rooms lowering the blinds. [We] didn’t know which parts of the Capitol complex were secure. [We] didn’t know the extent of what might have happened. [We] didn’t know whether members of Congress were among those killed or injured. To me, that again just disqualifies.
