House Impeachment Manager Hakeem Jeffries stunned lawmakers in the US Senate Friday; directly comparing President Trump’s 33-minute phone call with the leader of Ukraine to the Civil War, Great Depression, World War II, and September 11th terror attacks.
“America is a great nation. We can handle adversity better than any other country in the world. We always make it to the other side. We were in a tough spot during the Civil War… a tough spot in October of 1929 when the stock market collapsed,” said Jeffries.
“We were in a tough spot in December of 1941 when a foreign power struck plunging us into a great conflict with the evil empire of Nazi Germany… We were in a tough spot on September 11th when the towers were struck,” he added. “What are we going to do about our character? President Trump tried to solicit foreign interference in an American election.”
