    White House contender Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Thursday that Congress will have “no choice” but to begin impeachment proceedings if President Donald Trump continues to fight subpoenas issued by House Democrats. “It is obvious that the President is a pathological liar who does not understand the Constitution,” the self-avowed Democratic-socialist wrote on Twitter. “The fact is that if Mr. Trump continues to disregard the right of Congress to subpoena, he will leave House Members with no choice but to begin an impeachment inquiry.”
  • Pelosi says Trump needs an 'intervention'

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she wishes President Trump’s family would stage an “intervention” to stop him from his behavior. “That’s up to his family and his Cabinet and his staff in the White House. This is not behavior that rises to the dignity of the office of the president of the United States,” she said. Mrs. Pelosi also referred to the use of “Article 25” — presumably the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which includes provisions for the Cabinet to remove a president from office. Her comments came a day after she and the president blew up...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi openly questioned President Donald Trump's fitness to remain in office Thursday, suggesting a family or staff "intervention" for the good of the nation after his dramatic blow-up at a White House meeting with Democrats. No, said Trump's spokeswoman, it's the Democrats who are "insane" if they think he should work on legislation with them when they accuse him of engaging in a cover-up in the Trump-Russia election investigation. Both the Republican president and Democratic leaders dug in a day after Trump stalked out of the Cabinet Room demanding an end to all congressional probes before he...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was adamant that Democrats remain uninterested in pursuing impeachment, despite what she called President Trump's "irresponsible behavior" at the White House on Wednesday, when he dismissed claims of a "cover-up" in a 12-minute long tirade against Democrats in the Rose Garden. At her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill on Thursday, Pelosi claimed the president is "crying out for impeachment" as Democrats continue to press ahead with numerous investigations into the Trump administration. Pelosi told reporters, however, that any suggestion that Democrats are planning to pursue impeachment "simply isn't the truth." "Impeachment is a very divisive...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told her Democratic colleagues Thursday that President Donald Trump “wants to be impeached” so that he can be vindicated by the Senate. Pelosi made the comments at a closed-door morning meeting, two Democratic aides told NBC News, who also said that Pelosi called Trump’s actions “villainous.” The aide said that Pelosi was implying that she will stick to her current plan to keep investigating the president and his administration without jumping to impeachment, though she didn’t explicitly address strategy in her remarks.

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is pathetically begging billionaire Tom Steyer to “get” Attorney General William Barr and have him disbarred. Scarborough used a chunk of his show, “Morning Joe,” to push his partisan opinions and begged Steyer to take a break from pushing impeachment and instead get Barr disbarred. Here’s Scarborough’s full remarks: Mika, a lot of people might start talking about impeachment. That’s a very long process. I think at the very least, you see all these ads by Tom Steyer talking about impeach President Trump. I tell you, I tell you something that could be done more quickly...

    More evidence that Joe Scarborough has descended deep into the liberal fever swamp. Now he's calling on a leftist billionaire with a fixation on impeaching President Trump to shell out for a phalanx of lawyers to get Attorney General Bill Barr disbarred. Tom Steyer is the left-wing billionaire in question. He has poured tens of millions of dollars into TV ads demanding that President Trump be impeached. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough called on Steyer to direct his efforts toward having Attorney General Bill Barr disbarred. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi snapped at White House counselor Kellyanne Conway after a tense, aborted meeting on infrastructure Wednesday, a senior administration official told CNBC. “I don’t talk to staff. I talk directly to the president,” Pelosi said after Conway asked the speaker a question, according to the official. The interaction followed President Donald Trump’s abrupt exit from a meeting with Democratic congressional leaders. Pelosi earlier in the day accused the president of engaging in a “cover-up” by blocking White House aides from providing testimony and responding to document requests from congressional investigations. The president responded by saying he doesn’t...

    President Trump spoke with reporters on Wednesday morning following his meeting with Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. This was also after Pelosi told reporters earlier that President Trump was involved in a “cover-up.” President Trump left the meetings and held an impromptu press conference with the liberal White House press corps. President Trump told reporters, “I don’t do cover-ups.” Trump again told reporters there was “no collusion” and “obstruction.” According to the Number 2 Democrat in the US Senate, Dick Durbin, the president walked into the room with Pelosi and Schumer, blasted them, cancelled the meeting on the spot...

    Willie Geist asked Susan Del Percio what she would do about impeachment "if you were a Democrat?" MSNBC still passes Del Percio off as a "Republican" strategist. But it appears that the most recent person she strategized for was Andrew Cuomo, the liberal Democrat governor of New York. On today's Morning Joe, Del Percio urged Democrats to impeach President Trump, saying "they should be acting now." She thus puts herself to the activist left of Nancy Pelosi. Del Percio also touted having recently called on Senate Republicans to reject President Trump's call for emergency border security. Del Percio is a...
  • Libertarians want Justin Amash to run for president, and he may do it

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 22, 2019
    Rep. Justin Amash's tweets declaring that President Trump committed impeachable offenses have made him an outcast among Republicans, but many of his supporters are excited about what they see as a sign he will run for president as a Libertarian. The Michigan Republican, 39, is known for defying party leaders on issues such as mass surveillance and government spending. And since Trump took office, he’s been viewed as a possible Libertarian champion in 2020 — a notion amplified by his Saturday remarks. Amash’s emergence as a possible competitor may have caught Trump’s campaign off-guard.

Cohen, who made headlines recently for bringing Kentucky Fried Chicken to a hearing in an attempt to mock the absence of Attorney General William Barr, began by saying the Democrats who sit on the House Judiciary Committee "care most about justice" and "the rule of law." "The Judiciary Committee, as a whole, is for at least an inquiry of impeachment," Cohen told MSNBC's Ari Melber. "There might have been two members...

    Republican Representative from Michigan Justin Amash’s calls for President Trump’s impeachment may be motivated by his own financial interests in China, it has been revealed. In a lengthy Twitter thread on May 18th, the congressman said the Mueller Report revealed “President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment.” He continued to claim that “any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted” based on the findings of the report. The comments were seized upon by a Trump-hostile media intent on driving a wedge through the GOP...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC It is just as politicized a maneuver to not impeach in the face of overwhelming evidence as it is to impeach w/o cause. Congress swore an oath to uphold the Constitution. That includes impeachment. We have a duty to preserve our institutions + uphold the rule of law.
