    Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts on Wednesday said: “There are more troops right now in Washington, D.C. than Afghanistan, and they are here to defend us against the commander in chief, the president of the United States, and his mob.”

    He made the remarks during the final debate in the U.S. House of Representatives on whether to impeach President Donald Trump over “incitement of insurrection.”

    “I would ask my colleagues to look at the faces of those young Americans defending democracy, defending us, and find an ounce of their courage and do the right thing and take a tough vote for our future of democracy, for the future of our country,” he said.
