Trump ally slams House GOP plan to impeach Rosenstein — and says it makes impeaching the president easier

Published

on

Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak, a staunch backer of President Donald Trump, slammed House Republicans who this week filed articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Reacting to impeachment articles filed by Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), Pollak questioned not only whether such a resolution would be successful, but whether it was even wise to consider in the first place.

“Where are the ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ in the Rosenstein indictment?” he asked. “How does it not set a low bar for the political impeachment of Trump?”

Pollak isn’t the only conservative to question the wisdom of the impeachment resolution against Rosenstein, as Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano called the effort “embarrassing” during a “Fox & Friends” appearance on Thursday.

“The constitution says that there’s a very very narrow basis for impeachment and that’s intentional,” he said. “If it were a broad basis people would be getting kicked out of office left and right. Treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors. When Bill Clinton was impeached, it was obstructing justice by lying under oath so it has to be something of that magnitude.”

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
