Representative Doug Collins, who is the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, reminded Democrats that they failed to live up to the standards set in the Clinton and Nixon impeachment proceedings.

According to The Daily Caller:

Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins testified Tuesday that House Democrats have “failed so miserably” to make the current impeachment inquiry mirror that of former Presidents Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon.

The ranking Judiciary member stated during the House Rules Committee impeachment hearing that the impeachment inquiry has repeatedly talked about alleged crimes committed by President Donald Trump, “but they couldn’t find it in themselves to charge one.”

“This majority has tried so hard to be like Clinton and Nixon and failed so miserably,” he added. “But every time we try, we try once again, except the one thing when it came down to the very end, the one thing they couldn’t do was find find a crime.”

“If you read the majority’s report, it’s well written. It is some of the best work you’ll see, frankly in some ways a fictional account of what this actually is,” Collins continued before claiming “that the problem here is a majority bent on finding something for this president.”

Impeachment is expected to be brought to the House floor for a full vote on Wednesday.
