Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-Texas) claimed that President Biden is simply a compassionate father who is "guilty of loving his child unconditionally" in response to Republicans who are seeking an impeachment of the commander in chief. Crockett also suggested that Republicans are looking past alleged crimes of former President Donald Trump.
The representative from Texas's 30th Congressional District insisted that Republicans do not have any evidence of any crimes committed by the president to justify their position.
“When you’re talking about impeachment, you’re talking about high crimes or misdemeanors,” Crockett said, according to Mediaite . “And I can’t seem to find the crime. And honestly, no one has testified of what crime they believe the president of the United States has committed.”
The congresswoman then flipped the script and began to list accusations of crimes made against
, referring to allegations of the mishandling of classified documents.
“But when we start talking about things that look like evidence, they want to act like they blind. They don’t know what this is,” Crockett said as she waved photos of boxes found at Trump's estate. “These are our national secrets! Looks like in the s***ter to me. This looks like more evidence of our national secrets, say, on a stage at Mar-a-Lago.”
"When we're talking about somebody that's committed high crimes, it's at least indictments, let's say 32 counts related to unauthorized retention of national security secrets, seven counts related to obstructing the investigation ... I could go on, because he's got 91 counts pending right now," the congresswoman went on.
Crockett explained that President Biden is simply a loving father in relation to his son Hunter and again alluded to the idea that there is no evidence against the Bidens.
“I will tell you what the president has been guilty of. He has unfortunately been guilty of loving his child unconditionally. ... I hope and pray that my parents love me half as much as he loves his child," she said.
"Until they find some evidence, we need to get back to the people’s work, which means keeping this government open so that people don’t go hungry in the streets of the United States.”
Responding to allegations about the president and his son as just a story about a father's compassion for his child has been frequently used by the Democrat Party and in the media.
Democrat James Clyburn of South Carolina said just a week before that "you don't impeach a man for being a father to his children."
"I think it's appropriate to be a father to your son," he added, according to RawStory .
Liberal pundit Ana Navarro also described the situation as "a father's unconditional love for his child" in June 2023 .
Vanity Fair published a similar story in October 2022 criticizing Fox News for going after a "Loving Father Who Cares About His Son."
This was regarding a story about Hunter Biden allegedly purchasing a firearm illegally.
JUST IN: The View's Ana Navarro is on the verge of tears as she says the big takeaway from the Hunter Biden laptop is the story of a 'father's love.'\n\nThis is how the propaganda state media covers for their dear leader.\n\n"The Hunter Biden story, the scandal, the this the that.\u2026— Collin Rugg (@Collin Rugg) 1687798169
