Democrats Compare Trump to 9/11 Terrorists and Nazi Germany During Impeachment Trial
New York Representative Hakeem Jeffries lays into president during trial
Democrat House impeachment manager, New York Representative Hakeem Jeffries, claimed President Donald Trump's impeachment trial is similar to fighting al-Qaeda terrorists after 9/11 and battling Nazi Germany during World War II.
“Whenever America has found itself in a tough spot, we always make it to the other side,” Jeffries said.
“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, but America made it to the other side.”
“We were in a tough spot on September 11th when the towers were struck, and young men and women like Jason Crow were sent to Afghanistan to fight the terrorists there, so we didn’t have to fight the terrorists here, and we made it to the other side,” Jeffries later continued.
“America is a great country.”
Jeffries remarks come on the final day Democrats have to make their case for removing President Trump from office.
On Friday, fellow impeachment "manager" Jerry Nadler claimed that Trump's alleged 'abuse of power' threatens the republic.
Nadler accused Trump of "abuse of power, betrayal of the nation, and corruption in elections into a single unforgivable scheme," on the second day of the impeachment trial.

Earlier this week, Republican state attorney generals sent a letter to the Senate stating that Trump’s impeachment "establishes a dangerous historical precedent."
Four of the Republicans on Thursday said the trial is "tearing at the threads of our democracy" and turning into a "kangaroo court."
Meanwhile, House Democrats accused Republicans of a 'cover-up' during the impeachment trial.
Republican North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows responded to the claims saying the “only cover-up” in the impeachment process is by House impeachment manager Adam Schiff and his fellow Democrats,
Meadows was citing the fact that the 'whistleblower' who filed the complaint about the president's phone call with Ukraine's leader, worked with two of anti-Trump Democrat Adam Schiff's staffers.
