Tuesday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin discussed how the ongoing impeachment process against President Donald Trump will be remembered by history — and said that members of Congress should act accordingly.

“I would tell Nancy Pelosi, who fascistically announced that we impeached Trump and that can’t be taken back, he’ll be forever impeached,” Levin said, “that it is you who are stained by your own fascism.”

Levin went on to say that Pelosi and House Democrats “will go down in history in an extraordinarily negative way.” In contrast, “Donald Trump, in this context, will be viewed as the victim of a rogue and out-of-control, small majority in the House of Representatives. It will be said that they denied him the due process that was provided to prior presidents who faced impeachment and judges who had faced impeachment.”

The host then turned to the upper chamber, which is expected to start its trial next week, per Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. More specifically, Levin turned his attention toward Senate Republicans who are likely to join with Democrats’ calls for extra witnesses during the trial.

“They will be remembered, also, like the Democrats,” Levin said. “History will tell us that they undermined the Constitution and participated in a coup against a duly elected president. And the reason is this: What was done in the House of Representatives has never been done in American history. Never before. It’s a complete ruse, a complete sham.”

By calling for extra witnesses instead of dismissing the charges, Levin explained, senators are “giving credibility to a process that is a poisonous process, rather than upholding their constitutional responsibility to serve as a check on a rogue House of Representatives.”
