Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) on Thursday complained about his Democratic colleagues opening up an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump while supposedly ignoring other problems facing the country.
During a discussion on an impeachment investigation, Reschenthaler accused Democrats of not being forthright about their intentions while also saying that they aren’t doing anything to solve the country’s problems by launching such a probe.
“Since November 2016, the Democratic Party has desperately tried to undo the will of the people,” he said. “People want us to move on. They want us to work together. They want us to solve real issues that are facing America. They want their roads and bridges repaired. They want help fighting the opioid epidemic. And they want more money in their pockets to feed their families. So again, I ask, are you conducting an impeachment inquiry or not? If you are, just be honest with the American people.”
Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) interrupted Reschenthaler and shot down the notion that running an impeachment inquiry would harm Congress’s ability to get work done.
“The answer is yes, we are engaging in an impeachment investigation,” Cicilline said. “In addition to that, we have moved aggressively forward on our agenda. It is about driving down health care costs, driving down the cost of prescription drugs, and taking on the corruption in Washington.”

Brian Williams compares Corey Lewandowski’s opening statement to the North Korean news lady
MSNBC host Brian Williams on Tuesday noted the similarities between former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and North Korean news anchor Ri Chun Hee.
"Corey Lewandowski, the former Trump campaign manager who is now considering a Senate run in New Hampshire, testified before the House Judiciary Committee today," Williams reported. "It is likely his North Korean anchorwoman-quality opening remarks were meant were one viewer (Donald Trump)."
Ri, who has earned the nickname "Pink Lady," is known for her enthusiastic reading of government-approved news.

‘Train-wreck of a witness’: Analysts nail ‘obstructive’ Corey Lewandowski for proving the Democrats’ case
Political commentator Catherine Rampell disagreed with New York Times columnist Frank Bruni that the Democrats faltered during the hearing with Corey Lewandowski Tuesday. Former state and federal prosecutor Elie Honig called Lewandowski a "train-wreck of a witness."
She explained that Democrats had an extremely low bar: they had to prove Trump obstructed justice and that Corey Lewandowski gave one of the examples of such obstructions. In that sense, Rampell said they accomplished their goals.
"I don’t think this was a great day for Corey Lewandowski," she began. "This is a guy who went on TV and announced to the world -- apparently at the same time he is also trying to fundraise for Senate -- that he lies most of the time. Except when he's under oath."
WATCH: Ana Navarro keeps shouting down Trump booster — even as CNN host cuts to commercial
President Donald Trump cheered on his top Hispanic advisor Steve Cortes, who appeared before a New Mexico audience. Trump asked Cortes which he loved more, Hispanics or America, which prompted CNN's Ana Navarro to blast the president for racism. Meanwhile, Trump's latest CNN shill cried "political correctness."
"Look, I suspect he didn't want to offend Steve Cortes and I suspect Steve Cortes was not offended," Navarro said. "But really what a stupid thing to say. Right? To somehow ask the question about whether you love the country more than you love Hispanics -- they are one and the same."
