Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) lashed out at House Republicans after Tuesday evening’s vote to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, saying it was proof that former President Donald Trump was driving their actions.

“I don’t know who Mike Johnson is. It’s clear Donald Trump is Speaker of the House,” Moskowitz told Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” arguing Mayorkas’ impeachment would never get off the ground. “The only thing that’s going to change is his Wikipedia page.”

Moskowitz went on to attack his Republican colleagues on the foreign aid package that just passed the Senate, complaining that they had opposed both that and the recently-scrapped immigration deal because they wanted to deny Biden any possible victories. This, too, he chalked up to the House Republicans doing Trump’s bidding.

“[Trump] wants to change how the United States is viewed around the world,” Moskowitz said. “I mean, the idea that he wants to get back into office, and he wants to have better relationships with China and Russia, right, who are trying to destabilize the world should send literally shivers down Americans’ spine. You know, he talks about, Joe Biden is going to start World War II — by the way, that happened in the ’40s — but Donald Trump, what he’s talking about dealing with Russia, if Russia would start invading Europe, that would start World War III, by the way. Donald Trump is talking about that and setting the stage.”


Moskowitz seemed to be referencing Trump’s recent comments about NATO, in which he indicated that he would oppose providing support for member nations that were not meeting their financial obligations to the body.

“When I told the 20 Countries that weren’t paying their fair share that they had to PAY UP, and said without doing that you will not have U.S. Military Protection, the money came rolling in,” Trump said in a recent statement. “After so many years of the United States picking up the tab, it was a beautiful sight to see. But now, without me there to say YOU MUST PAY, they are at it again. We are into helping Ukraine for more than 100 Billion Dollars more than NATO. We have nobody that they respect, and they insist on paying far less than we do. Wrong, NATO HAS TO EQUALIZE, AND NOW. THEY WILL DO THAT IF PROPERLY ASKED.”
