Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) sent Democrats into a tizzy on Thursday when she brought attention to a "hypocritical" argument that Democrats are making to protect President Joe Biden.
Democrats claim the impeachment inquiry targeting President Biden is tainted by political motivations because, in their eyes, there exists no evidence to prove Biden family corruption. At the first House Oversight Committee hearing of the impeachment inquiry, Democrats pointed to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and her effort to impeach Biden two years ago as evidence that Republicans are unfairly targeting Biden.
But Mace quickly put an end to that argument.
The South Carolina Republican entered into the congressional record Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib's infamous demand in January 2019 that then-President Donald Trump, whom Tlaib called a "motherf***er," be impeached.
"Mr. Chairman, I request unanimous consent to enter an article into the record dated Jan. 6, 2019," Mace petitioned. "A member of this own committee, the day after she was sworn in, came into Congress and this article says 'Dem split response to her words "impeach the mother f-er"' the day after she was sworn in.
"Some might even say these kinds of comments, not only are they hypocritical by the left and their arguments today, but that this is an embarrassment to the time and people of this country," Mace added.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), the top Oversight Democrat, immediately took issue with Mace's petition, accusing her of personally attacking Tlaib.
"Mr. Chairman, I'm afraid my friend, the gentle lady from South Carolina, just engaged in personalities against a fellow member of the committee," Raskin objected.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R) countered that Mace simply asked to enter into the congressional record Tlaib's own words.
"She said it. She actually said it," Comer told Raskin as he continued to object.
That's when Rep. Alexandria Ocaiso-Cortez (D-N.Y.) interjected to claim that Mace's "commentary" was problematic as Mace kept defending herself.
Ultimately, Raskin and Ocasio-Cortez backed off, the comments were entered into the congressional record, and the hearing continued.
