MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Friday reminded Senate Republicans of their calls to “let the voters decide” the fate of President Donald Trump when they voted to acquit him of impeachment charges earlier in the year.
Hayes accused the vast majority of Republican senators of being “complicit participants” with their silence on the president’s “feeble attempt to subvert the election.”
He aired a montage of GOP senators — including Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) — saying in February that they did not support removing Trump from office at that time because it should be up to the American people to decide in November.
“OK. … We had an election,” said Hayes. “The voters decided. And so now all those senators should be showing some deference, some respect for the decision.”
“I mean, they told us this was the thing to do, and we went out and did it, and now what? Now what?” he asked.
