A Democrat listed Trump’s trials on the House floor. His words were struck from the record.

The House was brought to a halt for over an hour on Wednesday after Republicans demanded that the words of Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) be “taken down” from the congressional record after McGovern, during House floor remarks, listed the number of criminal trials former president Donald Trump faces.

This, he said, is a “stunning indictment of their ability to get anything done.”
