MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called for Attorney General William Barr to lose his law license for lying to Congress.
The “Morning Joe” host conceded that impeachment for President Donald Trump was a long and politically fraught process, but he said there’s a simpler remedy for Barr’s misconduct.
“I tell you something that could be done more quickly and more effectively is looking back at what happened with Bill Clinton,” Scarborough said. “Yes, Bill Clinton got impeached, but you know what else? He got disbarred from the Arkansas Supreme Court for committing perjury.”
“You have the attorney general of the United States of America who has committed perjury — it’s on tape,” he added.
Scarborough said the attorney general should also be disbarred.
“The truth is out there, the evidence is out there and as a certain New York City broadcasting legend said, let’s go to tape,” Scarborough said. “I mean, that’s what they should do. He’s unworthy to be attorney general of the United States, and he is unworthy of even being an officer of the court because he is lying every day.”
Trump was ‘in denial’ he would be impeached — until he watched TV yesterday: CNN reporter
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," White House correspondent Boris Sanchez said that President Donald Trump believed for weeks that Democrats were not really going to go through with impeachment — but after watching the House Judiciary Committee testimony on Wednesday, he finally realized they were serious.
"Is it clear how the president is handling this behind closed doors?" asked Cooper.
"Well, for weeks we've been hearing that the president has sort of been in denial about all of this, that he did not actually believe that Democrats in the house would vote to impeach him," said Sanchez. "We're actually told that he's come to terms with that reality in part because he was watching testimony yesterday as he was returning from a NATO leaders meeting in London."
Mississippi Republican who lost to Democrat by 14 votes files request for state House to void the election and declare her the winner
On Thursday, Mississippi Today reported that state Rep. Ashley Henley, who lost her bid for re-election to Democrat Hester Jackson-McCray by just 14 votes in November, has filed a request for the GOP-controlled state legislature to overturn the results of the election and seat Henley for another term.
Henley cites what she claims are several irregularities in voter signature collection, and "missing" ballots. "There were irregularities that happened, absolutely, documented, very much so that bring into question the legitimacy of the election results," said Henley said. "That is without question."
Trump’s campaign manager mocked for proudly sharing poll that suggests Dems will keep the House in 2020
On Thursday, President Donald Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale posted a poll that was meant to warn Democrats off of their impeachment efforts, by showing how it was hurting their prospects in a competitive House race.
Specifically, the "confidential" poll showed freshman Rep. Kendra Horn (R-OK) down seven points against a generic Republican, and impeachment opposed 52 percent to 45 percent:
Nancy Pelosi is marching members of her caucus off the plank and into the abyss.
Impeachment is killing her freshman members and polling proves it.
