Republican Group Will Run Ad on Fox News Urging GOP to Hold Trump Accountable: ‘No Exoneration, Definitely Obstruction
Over the weekend, Republicans for the Rule of Law will air an advertisement on Fox News urging GOP lawmakers to hold Trump accountable for “lying” and “obstructing justice,” like Republicans had done with former Democratic President Bill Clinton more than 20 years ago, when a GOP-led House succesfully impeached Clinton on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Clinton was subsequently acquitted on all charges after a trial in the Senate.
“The Mueller Report revealed multiple instances of President Trump lying and obstructing justice. Twenty years ago, Republicans denounced a Democratic president for lying and obstructing justice,” the 34-second advertisement’s opening reads, before cutting to old clips of GOP lawmakers condemning Clinton on Capitol Hill. “Republicans stood for the rule of law then. We should stand for the rule of law now,” it concludes.
