Judiciary chairman expects voters to watch ‘riveting’ impeachment hearings — that may result in Trump’s removal

Published

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee explained how televised impeachment hearings could result in Senate Republicans choosing to remove Trump from office when voting following the Senate trial.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) was interviewed Thursday by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

“Do you see the process as possibly ending in the removal of the president of the United States?” Hayes asked. “Is that a live possibility in your mind?”

“I think it is a possibility,” Nadler replied. “I don’t know how to estimate the possibility, but I would certainly say it’s not a zero possibility.”

“One of the things that’s going to happen both in the Intelligence Committee open hearings and whatever proceedings that we pursue in the hearings or whatever, is the American people will watch it. I think it’s going to be riveting, the American people will watch it, they’ll develop their own opinions and express those opinions to senators and members of the House,” he explained.

“And I think it’s possible depending on how strong the evidence is and depending on other political considerations that maybe the Senate will act to remove the president. But I’m not going to give an estimate, and I can’t estimate that, but I will say I don’t think it’s a zero possibility,” he continued. “That’s a very cynical view it’s a zero possibility.”

“And I think some Republican senators may take a look at the election results the other day and start thinking maybe I should be a little more fair and not dismissive,” he added.

A supporter of President Donald Trump was recently kicked out of a barbecue joint in Kansas after he flashed a gun at an employee who asked him to wear a face mask.

The Kansas City Star reports that a man wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat walked into the RJ’s Bob-Be-Que Shack in Mission, Kansas last week without wearing a face mask.

When he was asked to wear one by worker Arlo Kinsey, he said that he had an "exemption" to Kansas's statewide mask order -- after which he pulled up his shirt and revealed he was carrying a holstered gun.

In Trump’s ‘murder the messenger’ White House ‘it’s survival of the morally sickest’: conservative

Published

on

In his column for the Daily Beast, conservative -- and former Republican -- Matt Lewis explained that Donald Trump's decision to turn on Dr. Anthony Fauci is yet another example of his habit of destroying advisers who don't tell him what he wants to hear which is why and, in this case, more Americans are going to die in the coronavirus pandemic.

As Lewis notes, Fauci, who has been brutally frank about the resurgent COVID-19 health crisis that is now swamping Arizona, Texas and Florida, joins a long line of high profile administration officials who have found themselves on the president's hit list for not toeing the administration's line.
