‘Something is not right here’: GOP lawmaker alarmed by Trump-Putin press conference

Published

on

A Republican lawmaker expressed shock and alarm over President Donald Trump’s behavior during a joint press conference following his private meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the first sitting GOP lawmaker to float the possibility of impeachment, watched the nearly hourlong news conference with the same feeling of trepidation as many other Americans.

“A person can be in favor of improving relations with Russia, in favor of meeting with Putin, and still think something is not right here,” Amash tweeted.

Trump met his Russian counterpart for more than two hours in Helsinki with only translators present, just three days after a federal grand jury indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking the 2016 election.

The president proclaimed that he trusted Putin’s denials over the broad consensus of U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies, which he attacked from the news conference.

"Listen, I haven’t spent a nanosecond in a courtroom, but I’ve spent my career in the court of public opinion. And if you look at what the Democrats have set out to do and you look at why this has swung public opinion in a way the Mueller probe never did is that they have laid brick on top of brick on top of brick," Wallace explained.

Room erupts in laughter as Democrat Peter Welch destroys Jim Jordan during impeachment hearing

Published

on

There was a moment of levity four-hours into the first televised hearing in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the bombastic Freedom Caucus member who was added to the committee at the last moment by Republicans, had argued that the White House whistleblower started the scandal.

"There’s one witness, one witness that they won’t bring in front of us, they won’t bring in front of the American people, and that’s the guy who started it all, the whistleblower," Jordan argued.

Unfortunately for the wrestling coach turned politician, Jordan was followed by Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT).
