Members of Congress have a duty to commence with an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, a conservative commentator explained on MSNBC’s “The Beat” with Ari Melber.
Republican strategist Sophia Nelson, who was a GOP counsel for the House Oversight Committee, made a powerful case for members of both parties to put principle before perceived political advantage.
“Of all the Republicans ducking and hiding, I’ve only heard Justin Amash (R-MI) and recently former defense secretary and congressman Bill Cohen, who was on the Nixon impeachment Judiciary Committee in the House as a Republican, he said something I want to leave people with today which is ‘Congress, do your job,'” Nelson noted.
“This isn’t about whether or not you’re going to get re-elected, it’s not about whether or not you’re coming back. You took an oath to the Constitution,” she continued.
“What Mueller laid out in four hundred some pages in his report — I read it all as I suspect all of you did — was serious high crimes and misdemeanors,” she continued. “At the end of the day, the Congress has to do its duty and must start an inquiry now.
“Because it’s time, it’s just time for them to do it,” Nelson concluded.
“It’s the right thing to do — you honor your oath,” she added. “This is about the Constitution, not about politics.”
This pro-Trump pastor is now praying for impeachment after watching Republicans ‘sell their souls to the devil’
A conservative Florida pastor says he has prayed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.
“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."
Trump faces a ‘personnel time bomb’ as his complicit officials get hauled before Congress: columnist
President Trump's prospects for a second term are threatened by two kinds of people: Those "who have either had enough of him or are being forced by subpoena to share what they’ve seen," according to a new Washington Post opinion piece by Paul Waldman.
Waldman writes that it isn't Trump's top administration officials who are threatening his presidency; it's the lesser known professionals who are "so distant from the Oval Office that Trump probably doesn’t even know they exist" -- one example being former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.
OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity
One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.
In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.
"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."
"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
