On Friday, The New York Times reported that Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV) has become the first Republican congressman to endorse the House’s impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump:

According to the Nevada Independent, Amodei is reserving judgment on whether Trump has actually committed an impeachable offense, but supports efforts to investigate. “Let’s put it through the process and see what happens,” he said.

Previously, one other Republican congressman had suggested the president committed impeachable offenses: Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan. But Amash left the GOP to become an independent in July, long before the impeachment inquiry was announced. Additionally, two Republican governors, Phil Scott of Vermont and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, have signed on to the effort.

Currently a majority of House lawmakers support the inquiry, launched to investigate the president’s apparent attempts to extort the Ukrainian president into digging up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

Over the course of a lengthy interview, Illing asked Jolly how anyone could compare the statements that Graham made about Trump in 2016 with the fierce defenses he's recently been making of the president and not conclude that the South Carolina senator is a blatant fraud.

Nikki Haley buried for Confederate flag ‘heritage’ defense: ‘Pleading to Trump to make her the VP right here’

Published

Former South Carolina governor and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley stepped in it on Friday afternoon after making the bizarre claim that the Confederate flag was a symbol of "service, and sacrifice, and heritage" until convicted murderer Dylann Roof "hijacked" it.

During an interview with conservative talk show host Glenn Beck, Haley stated, "“Here is this guy who comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag. And [he] had just hijacked everything that people thought of. We don’t have hateful people in South Carolina — there’s always the small minority, that’s always going to be there — but people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage, but once he did that, there was no way to overcome it.”
