Ex-GOP Rep explains how Dems will ease into impeachment after winning Congress in the midterms

Published

A former Republican congressman from Florida laid out how Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee will ease into impeachment following the 2018 midterm elections.

Former Congressman David Jolly (R-FL) explained his prediction to MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews on Tuesday.

“Should Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives in November, there’s one word we might hear a lot of in the future, in fact, pretty soon: impeachment,” Matthews noted.

“I do think, come January when the Democrats successfully take the House, you will see hearings within the House,” Rep. Jolly suggested. “Not specifically about impeaching Donald Trump, but they’ll bring scholars in to say what actions and behaviors would rise to the level of impeachment.”

“Who’s that smart?” Matthews interrupted. “Is this Jerry Nadler (D-NY), going to do this, on the House Judiciary Committee?”

“Of course,” he answered. “They can have these scholars come in, to the Judiciary Committee and say ‘this is what impeachment would look like’ and Democrats can say ‘we’re not quite there yet,’ but guess what — all of us will be talking about it.”

“You’re a Republican, you don’t know the culture of the Democratic Party,” Matthews argued. “There’s the Black Caucus, for example, and a lot of progressives who are not minorities. That group of people will be damn screaming for impeachment by next spring.”

“How do you hold them back?” Matthews wondered.

The work done at the Charlotte facility will be outsourced to a firm in Arkansas, according to the report.

Published

Melania Trump was ripped on Monday for pushing her signature "Be Best" campaign against bullying while her husband, President Donald Trump, runs concentration camps for children along the southern border.

"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.

The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
