Former Rep. Tom Delay (R-TX) knows all about illegal activity. The disgraced Texas politician earned an official admonishment by the United States House Committee on Ethics after he allegedly laundered money to help fellow Republicans win their elections.

While Delay avoided jail time thanks to his conviction being overturned, he wants to see another Clinton trial. According to RightWingWatch, Delay demands Congress reprise the Clinton impeachment that lost Republicans the House in the 1990s.

In an appearance on the “Steve Malzberg Show,” Delay admitted that if he was in charge he’d start impeachment proceedings the day after the election. “Whether she’s pardoned [by President Obama] or not,” DeLay said. “You can’t have a criminal serving in the White House as president of the United States and commander in chief. It’s impossible, so let’s try her in the Senate.”

Malzberg pointed out the GOP is unlikely to even have enough votes in the Senate to actually convict Clinton, DeLay didn’t care. “We knew we didn’t have the votes to convict in the Senate, but we impeached [Bill] Clinton anyway because we knew that it was our responsibility to do so.”

The GOP then lost seats and former Speaker Newt Gingrich was humiliated and resigned in disgrace.

Republicans will “have enough guts to impeach Clinton if the American people demand it,” Delay said.

Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.

During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.

"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.

Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.

The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
