    On Sunday, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) appeared on MSNBC to talk about the 1994 crime bill. During the conversation, Clyburn made a shocking admission: he doesn't believe the Bill of Rights would pass if it was brought forth today. "You know what, I really believe sincerely that the climate we're in today, if the Bill of Rights the first 10 Amendments of the United States Constitution, were put before the public today, I'm not too sure we'd hold onto the Bill of Rights," Clyburn said. "Especially when I see what people are doing with the Second Amendment. No...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) announced on Thursday that they will introduce legislation in the House and Senate that would forgive up to $50,000 of each students’ college loan debt, which would help about 42 million people, according to a press release posted on Warren’s Senate website. “The legislation will significantly lessen the student debt crisis and help tackle the racial wealth gap,” the headline of the press release announcing the bills said. Warren, a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions and Clyburn, House Majority Whip, both claim that the...

    Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer’s Need To Impeach group announced Monday that they are targeting 12 incumbent Democrats because they haven’t come out in support of impeaching President Donald Trump. Need to Impeach is targeting Democrats who have not publicly called for the president’s impeachment or for an inquiry into the matter. Their targets include Democratic politicians who represent prominent leadership and who hold leadership positions on key House committees, lawmakers and representatives from key voting districts. Of the most prominent names are presidential candidate and California Rep. Eric Swalwell; House Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina; House Oversight Committee...

    One thing I can virtually guarantee in all of this: The Attorney General will not be moved one inch by a impending contempt vote in the House of Representatives.  Nevertheless, this preposterous piece of political theater demonstrates the fundamental unseriousness of Jerry Nadler and House Democratic leaders, who very much seem desperate to offer morsels of political catharsis to their enraged base, setting aside the merits of the case.  In order to keep their tap dance on impeachment going, they need to signal that they share their core voters' indignation.  Thus, as I've argued before, Barr derangement is being used...

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn on Monday walked back remarks suggesting that Democrats will impeach President Donald Trump, reversing course to say he’s “farther” from backing impeachment than most of his caucus. Clyburn’s comments came after a private leadership meeting Monday evening in which Speaker Nancy Pelosi reiterated that she didn’t support launching impeachment proceedings right now despite a growing push within the caucus. “I’m probably farther away from impeachment than anybody in our caucus,” Clyburn (D-S.C.) told reporters Monday night. “We will not get out in front of our committees. We’ll see what the committees come up with. I’ve...

    I don't think that there's a human being on earth stupid enough to believe what Rep. Clyburn is pushing here. The guy sending money to Nigerian royalty and buying the Brooklyn Bridge would still have to do a double take when the House Dem Whip insists that the Dem desire to destroy Trump is apolitical. CLYBURN: "We're trying to ensure we do what's necessary to educate the public, make sure the public understands exactly what we're doing, why we're doing it, so people won't misinterpret this as being a political move on our part. We believe that if we do...

    Over the weekend, another ranking Democrat, Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, appeared to placate the Donkey Party’s increasingly radicalized and Marxist base by intimating POTUS Donald Trump likely will be impeached by the House “at some point.” The Hill reported: When Tapper asked Clyburn if he thought Democrats would launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, he said “yes, that’s exactly what I feel.” “What Nancy Pelosi is trying to do, and the rest of us in the House of Representatives, is developing a process to efficiently move on this issue so when we get to the vote, something she calls...

    While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is urging caution and patience in response to those in her party clamoring for impeachment proceedings against President Trump, her top deputies are signaling it’s only a matter of time before they begin. South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, said in an interview Sunday that he believes impeachment proceedings ultimately will be launched against Trump at some point in the future. He suggested Democrats are already laying the groundwork in Congress. “I think we’ve already begun,” Clyburn said on CNN's "State of the Union." “We’ve got all of these committees...

    For the House’s growing impeachment caucus, June is shaping up to be the most critical month to make their case to a reluctant Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A month packed with subpoena fights, hearings on obstruction of justice and legal battles over Trump’s financial records is certain to provide fresh ammunition to grow the pro-impeachment ranks. “The temperature’s rising, the plot is thickening. It’s hard for me to imagine Congress certainly leaving for the August recess without some closure on this,” said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), who supports impeachment. “The Hamlet act is, I think, wearing thin, and it’s becoming untenable...

    A senior member of Democratic leadership suggested Sunday that the House will eventually begin formal impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump after building public support. "We think that we have to bring the public along," House Majority Whip James Clyburn said on CNN's "State of the Union." He continued, "We aren't particularly interested in the Senate. We do believe that if we sufficiently, effectively educate the public, then we will have done our jobs, and we can move on an impeachment vote and it will stand, and maybe it will be what needs to be done to incent the Senate...

    POTUS Donald Trump did not “collude” with Russia to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton. He did not “obstruct justice” by firing the most politically compromised FBI agent ever — James Comey — because special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe continued to its conclusion. And he didn’t “obstruct” the Mueller team because he cooperated with investigators. In short, nothing President Trump has done is a violation of law, let along a “high crime or misdemeanor,” which is the constitutional standard for impeaching a president.

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Sunday he believes President Trump will be impeached "at some point" but that Democrats must first build a case for impeachment. Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in House leadership, offered the remarks in an interview on "State of the Union with Jake Tapper." When Tapper asked Clyburn if he thought Democrats would launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, he said "yes, that's exactly what I feel."

    "I want to thank Minister Farrakhan for offering up a number of precepts that we ought to adhere to,” Rep. James Clyburn said, at an event featuring the anti-Semitic hate group leader. Eight years later, to the month, Clyburn, now the House Majority Whip, defended Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism. “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her," he argued, dismissing the concerns of Jewish legislators. Rep. Clyburn is one of the most powerful figures in the House. He’s also one of Farrakhan’s allies in the House who had...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Pelosi’s grip slips as Ocasio-Cortez and friends throw a party, leave the grandparents at homeHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and the old guard Democrats at large – are in a very difficult position. The radical young voters that Democrats have been courting for years have finally elected like-minded radical young representatives – and Pelosi, D-Calif., and her leadership team have no control over them. A big reason why, as I mentioned on “Hannity” this week, is that there is a wide generation gap between Democratic House leaders and freshmen Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New...

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Thursday defended controversial comments he made this week related to the Holocaust, saying that dark chapter of history — and the Jewish suffering that accompanied it — was uniquely horrific and he would never diminish its significance. "Every student of history, which I consider myself to be, recognizes the Holocaust as a unique atrocity which resulted in the deaths of six million Jews," he said in a statement posted to Twitter. "It should never be minimized; I never have and I never will." Clyburn came under fire Thursday from Republicans and some Jewish...

    At least James Clyburn gave Ilhan Omar some agency. Nancy Pelosi, who’s pushing an “All Hate Matters” strategy to protect her frosh caucus member, contradicts Clyburn’s “hierarchy of hurt” defense that Allahpundit rightly skewered in the previous post. Pelosi tried explaining it away as unintentional ignorance rather than repeated and malicious attacks on Jews who don’t agree with Omar:
