Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) is unfit to serve in Congress, the House Majority Whip said on CNN ahead of an expected vote to censure the controversial lawmaker.

House Resolution 789 notes "Gosar posted a manipulated video on his social media accounts depicting himself killing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and attacking President Joseph Biden."

The censure resolution also calls out the GOP, saying "the leadership of the Republican Party has failed to condemn Representative Gosar's threats of violence against the president of the United States and a fellow member of Congress."

The resolution says "depictions of violence can foment actual violence and jeopardize the safety of elected officials, as witnessed in this chamber on January 6, 2021."

CNN's John Berman interviewed Rep. Jim Clyburn (R-SC) about the censure vote.

"Over the years, I often referred to the House of Representatives, the hall of the House, as America's classroom," Clyburn said. "And I feel that very strongly we as members of Congress ought to conduct ourselves in that hall and in our duties and responsibilities in such a way that children, schoolchildren all over, can look to us, to emulate the conduct and that is why we should hold every member to a high standard."

"And when someone sends out a tweet or any other illustration of him or her murdering somebody on the House floor, that, to me, goes far beyond the pale and that person should not even be a member of this body," he continued.

"In fact, a lot of his family members are telling the whole world that he should not be a member of Congress," he noted. "And I think it would have been the right thing to do to move to expel him, but it is not what we have decided to do as a collective body, because we think quite frankly the Republican confidence has some responsibility here. They have been totally silent on this. What is that about? I just don't understand how we can, as members of Congress, expect for the public to respect us when we don't demonstrate that respect ourselves.
