Impeachment Manager Stacey Plaskett Brings Some Truth
The House delegate from the Virgin Islands lobbied for this position last time and didn’t get it. Democrats sure ought to be glad they gave it to her this time.
Instead, focus on the emerging political force that is House Delegate Stacey Plaskett, the unexpected impeachment manager who ripped a new one into Trump’s defense on Wednesday.
“Trump knew the people he was inciting, he saw the violence they were capable of, and he had a pattern and practice of praising and encouraging that violence—never, ever condemning it,” said Plaskett, who represents the Virgin Islands, in her remarks before Congress. By the time his “cavalry” of supporters arrived in Washington. D.C., “he had reason to know they were armed and willing to fight,” she argued.
