BLAST FROM THE PAST

That day at Daily Kos in 2019—John Dingell’s final request to the House on Trump administration: “Pull your asses up to Capitol Hill”:

Rep. John Dingell, longtime dean of the House of Representatives and the the longest-serving member of the legislative chamber of all time died on Thursday at the age of 92. To the end, Dingell was passionately loyal to the institution he served for so long and the constitution that enshrined it.

The Washington Post recalls Dingell’s final instructions to his former colleagues and to the new Democratic majority, written in his memoir, published in December, entitled The Dean: The Best Seat in the House.

Dingell, as anyone who followed his Twitter account knows, despised Trump and feared the harm he was doing to the nation.

Let me exclaim this: WE HAVE SIGNED OUR CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM OF CONTROLS AND BALANCES IN THE UNITED STATES! Get this: I’m not saying this as a partisan. I’m talking about someone in a government, Republican or Democrat, who believes they are above the law. “

With that in mind, he had advice for spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi and the new majority: “If we really want to make America great again, we must first drag their asses up to really bipartisan oversight committees on Capitol Hill and make them swear to the truth under penalty of To say perjury. […] Believe me it works. I saw the wet spots on the chairs after they testified. “
