At Thursday’s impeachment markup in the House Judiciary Committee, ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA) began shouting in anger, and compared Democrats to ‘petulant children’ waiting up for Santa Claus.
“It is amazing to listen to my colleagues talk about how we do proper process and subpoenas,” said Collins. “Let me take you through a wonderland trip, this year we issued more subpoenas and did more things amazingly outrageous than I could ever imagine. In fact, we learned some stuff this year. No offense to my chairman, he’s doing as best he can to satisfy the many demands and go over to get impeachment over, but we learned this year subpoenas were — they just helped you look better in court. We learned subpoenas are a conversation starter. I’m not sure what that is about. I know in court they’re not a conversation starter, they’re compelling information. They’re actually wanting us to move forward.”
“When you really look at this and start talking about how Democrats have been denied process and denied this, it’s interesting to me, 70 something days,” continued Collins. “The other day the gentlelady from California tried to make a comparison, it was not as fast as the Ken Starr investigation, but that was after almost three and a half years of investigation. In this one, we had since September until now. The majority, frankly, are acting like petulant children not getting their way because Santa Claus hasn’t come yet. Believe me, they’re getting ready to vote for their Christmas present. I think the American people, next November, will remember this Christmas present.”
Trump appointee has a Twitter meltdown after public reporting on her far-right beliefs
A bigoted Trump appointee at the famed U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has just quit but not before announcing she is teaming up with infamous conspiracy theorists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman at a Thursday press conference, where she will discuss her "Christian beliefs."
Merritt Corrigan, who once complained the U.S. is in the clutches of a “homo-empire” that pushes a “tyrannical LGBT agenda,” according to Pro-Publica, made several announcements via her now unlocked but mostly-all deleted Twitter account.
MSNBC’s ‘demotion’ of ‘feckless’ Chuck Todd celebrated: ‘Hurray! More Nicolle, less Chuck’
MSNBC host Chuck Todd was moved to an earlier timeslot where his show, "Meet the Press Daily," will likely earn lower ratings. Meanwhile, Nicolle Wallace seems to have been promoted to a two-hour timeslot leading into primetime.
Wallace, who has extensive experience in Washington, previously served in George W. Bush's White House until abandoning the GOP as the era of Trump came to power.
Todd has made several missteps where he's been unwilling to press GOP leaders who lie openly and obviously on camera.
George Conway blasts ‘blundering cheat’ Trump in new op-ed: ‘His name should live in infamy’
Prominent conservative attorney George T. Conway III has written yet another Washington Post op-ed blasting President Donald Trump.
"If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he lies and he cheats. Endlessly," Conway wrote. "And shamelessly. But still, mostly, incompetently."
"So it should have come as no surprise that Trump finally went where no U.S. president had ever gone before. In a tweet last week, he actually suggested that the country 'Delay the Election.' That trial balloon was a brazen effort to see if he can defraud his way into four more years in the White House," he explained. "And why not try? After all, Trump has managed to swindle his way through life, on matters large and small, essential and trivial."
