Delaware Republican refuses to resign after claiming Trump’s impeachment was orchestrated by the Jews

Published

on

On Tuesday, according to the Hockessin Community News, it became clear that the vice chairwoman of the Republican Party of Sussex County, Delaware, was not going to step down following a virulent screed on Facebook that members of her own party denounced as anti-Semitic.

“What amazes me the most in these theatrical Congress hearings, is to see how many Jews ‘In Name Only’ lend themselves to be in the hoaks [sic] of the pure made up story of Impeachment that the Democrats have woven as spiders catching flies and bugs,” wrote Jordan. “These jews [sic] have been enrolled to come and testify, to come and interrogate and to be involved in anything that the Democrats enlist them to do to try to look credible to the people of this country.” She went on to say that Jews are defying God’s will “as it was in the times of the Old Testament.”

Jordan’s Facebook account appears to have been subsequently deleted.

Her remarks drew outrage from fellow Republicans, with Delaware GOP chairwoman Jane Brady issuing a statement that read, “Neither I nor the Delaware Republican Party, which I represent, condone any statements that demean or show disrespect to others. The remarks made by Nelly Jordan, who was elected to her post by the Sussex County GOP Executive Committee, were offensive, hurtful and anti-Semitic.”

While Jordan has not resigned, she issued a letter to party officials, saying, “After much reflection and thought, I now realize my words were inappropriate. I apologize for raising questions about a people, a faith, and a culture whose beliefs span a broad political spectrum,” but adding, “It is an honor and a privilege to serve the Republican Party of Sussex County. I hope to continue to do so for many years.”

Brady indicated that if Jordan refused to resign, GOP officials would seek her removal. A disciplinary hearing took place on Monday, and a determination will be made by the Sussex County GOP next week.

‘They’re crushing us’: GOP House leaders in panic over Democratic fundraising

Published

on

On Tuesday, Politico's Jake Sherman reported that House GOP leadership expressed serious alarm about their prospects for reclaiming the majority in a closed-door strategy meeting at the Capitol Hill Club, citing disastrous fundraising numbers at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

"They're kicking our ass," said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who noted that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has outraised them by $40 million, and several individual Democratic House challengers are outraising GOP incumbents — not only dimming their hopes of taking back the House, but raising the possibility they could lose even more seats.

BUSTED: These 10 GOP senators said Ukraine quid pro quo was a red line before Bolton bombshell

Published

on

The Washington Post's Philip Bump has tracked down statements from ten different Republican senators who in the past indicated that impeachment charges against President Donald Trump would be far more serious if it could be proven there was a quid-pro-quo agreement that involved exchanging the release of foreign aid to Ukraine for the investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden.

All of the statements flagged by Bump came before this week's bombshell revelation that former national security adviser John Bolton's upcoming book will reportedly say the president directly linked Ukraine aid to the Biden investigation.

Law professor slams Trump team’s ‘distortions of facts’ as they try to shoot down congressional subpoenas

Published

on

Writing for The Atlantic, University of Missouri Law professor Frank Bowman excoriated the White House legal team for their rationale against honoring congressional subpoenas in the impeachment inquiry.

"On Saturday, Trump’s lawyer Pat Philbin tried to extinguish any flickers of enlightened self-interest among Republicans by arguing that Trump was entitled to stonewall the House because the House hadn’t properly authorized its own subpoenas," wrote Bowman. "Like so many contentions of the president’s defenders, this is malarkey thinly draped with plausible-sounding distortions of facts, rules, court opinions, and the Constitution itself."
