Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) had a freakout when a Democratic member of Congress dared to call out the president’s obstructions of justice during the hearing with Corey Lewandowski Tuesday. During her questioning, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) drew conclusions outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, but Collins proclaimed it was against the rules.
“Point of order, Mr. Chairman,” Collins interrupted her opening statement.
“The gentleman will state his point of order,” Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said.
“I would just ask, is the gentle lady accusing the president of a crime?” Collins asked.
“I can,” Mucarsel-Powell quipped.
“She can reword, I’ll be happy to withdraw,” said Collins.
“I’m not accusing anyone of anything. Can I continue?” she shot back.
“Not if you are continuing with the question saying that it’s a crime,” Collins said.
“Mr. Collins, this is not a Reality TV show. This is a serious Judiciary Committee hearing,” she schooled him.
“It’s a serious question,” Collins claimed.
“We are trying to investigate misconduct by the president. May I continue, Mr. Chairman?” she asked.
The questioning continued from there, putting Collins in his place.
Marco Rubio says it was a ‘bad look’ for Trump to pick Doral for G7 — after several days of defending the decision
On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admitted that it was a "bad look" for President Donald Trump to call for hosting the next annual G7 summit at the Trump National Doral golf resort in Miami, Florida:
“Obviously you know, given everything that's going on, it was a bad look,” Rubio said of G7 at Doral, though he doubts Trump wanted to make money. “As a Floridian I thought it was great that they were going to come down, especially in June when we don't have as many visitors."

‘You lost’: Internet mocks Trump for cheering on ‘great vote’ — that Republicans lost
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who sits on the House Intelligence Committee accidentally mistook a satirical article with a fake transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. While Schiff apologized for the error, Trump has called for his immediate impeachment.
Impeachment is outlined in the U.S. Constitution and the section of the founding document gives examples of what they meant by "high crimes and misdemeanors." It does not cite accidentally reading the wrong transcript aloud. Members of Congress cannot be impeached and censure is a toothless resolution that is meaningless.
