Adam Schiff slaps aside CNN’s Tapper complaint that impeachment is partisan and puts it on the GOP

Published

on

Towards the end of a very long interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) easily dismissed concerns by the State of the Union host that the impeachment proceedings have all the appearances of being a partisan exercise — with the Intelligence Committee chairman turning the charge back on Republicans.

“Ultimately if only Democrats vote to impeach the president — president trump and republicans and maybe a couple of democrats do not vote to impeach him, vote against that, doesn’t that suggest that this is a partisan impeachment? won’t that hurt the credibility of the impeachment that only democrats vote to support?” Tapper asked.

“I think what it will mean, if we decide that we cannot accept this kind of conduct in the president of the united states, and the Republicans decide that because of the president’s party or because they’re afraid of a primary for whatever reason they cannot vote to support impeachment, I think it will mean a failure by the gop to put the country above their party, and it will have very long-term consequences,” he replied.

Amy Klobuchar wins endorsement in first in the nation primary from the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper

Published

on

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.

"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."
