Democrat Rep. Jim Himes (CT) said during a Thursday interview on CNN that his “lizard brain” wants to see “bad things” happen to President Donald Trump.
“Let me press you, Congressman,” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said. “Do you want to see the president of the United States in jail?”
“More than anything else, Wolf, I don’t — this isn’t about my feelings or about retribution,” Himes responded. “The lizard brain that I have says I hope bad things happen to this man because he has been so destructive to our republic, to the concept of democracy, to the concept that, internationally, we are a light unto the nations.”
“So yes, I have my emotional reactions but, look, we’re a nation that is of a rule of — we are a nation of laws,” Himes continued. “So what I really hope — and this is me personally speaking — what I really hope is that if impeachment is not a mechanism of accountability — and I will tell you flat out that I can’t imagine anything happening, anything at all happening that would cause the Senate to convict and, therefore, remove this president — so impeachment stops in the House, in my opinion, my real hope is, that in 2020, the American voters look into their hearts, think about the generation that we’ve been celebrating today, who, as young men, decided that they would give their lives for this country.”
