On MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) laid into Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for saying he wasn’t even going to read the transcripts from impeachment witnesses because he found the whole process a “sham.”
“I don’t mean to laugh, but really?” said anchor Joy Reid. “I’m so mad about the process I refuse to read the evidence that I’m going to have to review as a juror? What is happening?”
“It’s one more shameful moment from a shameless senator, what we’re seeing from Lindsey Graham, but consistent with all of the other arguments,” said Jolly. “No Republican argument will actually touch the fact that the president confessed to bribing and extorting a foreign nation-state for purposes of benefiting himself politically. And I think that’s what we will see throughout the hearings, the public hearings.”
“The question is not will there be anything that changes the opinion of Republican members of Congress, but will there be anything that shifts public opinion that it forces the Republican members to follow them. Follow the voters,” said Jolly. “Right now, we have no reason to expect leadership from Republican, but we can expect them to follow. Right now the political strategy is this, don’t let the base erode. That is it. Because if they let the base erode, they will lose in 2020.”
‘I’m very upset’: Furious Texas rancher says Trump is ‘secretly’ trying to steal land to build ‘the wall’
Ranchers in Laredo, Texas, are furious as they're learning President Donald Trump is stealing their land away to build the "wall," he says, has already been built.
During a campaign stop in Louisiana Thursday, Trump said that his wall is "going up faster than anyone thought possible." But when probed about it, Trump's own top border official confirmed none of the wall has been built, in fact, all that has been built replaced existing structures.
Only four miles of the area where the Trump "wall" is going is owned by the federal government already. So, the White House is now calling land-owners on the Texas border to beg them to cooperate with their landgrab.
