REP JIM JORDAN: In seven days there will be a peaceful transfer of power, just like there has been every other time in our country. But Democrats are going to impeach President Trump again.

This doesn't unite the country. There's no way this helps the nation deal with the tragic and terrible events of last week that we all condemn. And Republicans have been consistent. We've condemned all the violence all the time. We condemned it last summer. We condemned it last week.

We should be focused on bringing the nation together, instead Democrats are going to impeach the President for a second time one week-- one week before he leaves office.

Why? Why? Politics and the fact that they want to cancel the President. And now it's impeachment round two. It's always been about getting the President no matter what. It's an obsession-- an obsession that has now broadened.

It's not just about impeachment anymore. It's about canceling as I've said-- canceling the President and anyone that disagrees with them. It needs to stop. Because if it continues-- if it continues, it won't just be Republicans who get canceled. It won't just be the President of the United States.

The cancel culture will come for us

WOMAN: Right.

REP JIM JORDAN: America's a great country, the greatest country ever. It seems to me that we need to think about how great the people of this nation really are, think about what we've accomplished in the past, and begin to come together as leaders.
