Democrats in the United States House of Representatives filed legislation to prevent any federal money from being allocated to any federal entity that honors or commemorates “certain former presidents” who “have been twice impeached by the House.”
Only one president in history has been impeached twice by the House — President Donald J. Trump.
Representative Linda Sanchez sponsored the bill, called “No Glory for Hate Act.” There are 13 cosponsors on the bill.
According to the proposed law, no federal funds may be used to “create or display any symbol, monument or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment.”
In addition, there will be no federal funds to “name, designate or redesignate a federal building or federal land after, or in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives.”
There will be no funds to “provide retirement, clerical assistants and free mailing privileges.”
There will be no benefit, except Secret Service protection.
And the Secretary of Defense shall not approve a determination of eligibility for interment or inurnment in Arlington National Cemetery made by the Secretary of the Amry that permits the interment or inurnment in Arlington National Cemetery of any former President that has been twice impeached by the House.”
