Posted on 02/23/2017 5:47:42 AM PST by Enlightened1
Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, a top candidate to take over as chair of the Democratic National Committee, called Wednesday for an impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump.
I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment, Ellison said during a debate on CNN on Wednesday with his fellow DNC chair hopefuls.
The left-wing Ellison, who is one of the top contenders for DNC chair, argued that Trump was in violation of the emoluments clause, a constitutional clause which prohibits presidents from receiving payment from foreign governments. Some Trump opponents have claimed that the Republican is in violation of the federal law because Trump hotels have received payment from foreign dignitaries.
Ellison joins a small group of Democratic lawmakers who have said impeaching Trump is on the table. California Rep. Maxine Waters, Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin and Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro have all said the Republican should be impeached. Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, has pushed back on the idea.

Keith wants to investigate to impeach President Trump on possibly receiving foreign money. He desperately wants to replace President Trump with Hillary, who received foreign payment from the Russians for 1/3 of U.S. Uranium.
I bet this Keith has an IQ around 70.
The Globalist are VERY DESPERATE to remove President Trump.
Keith Ellison is a racist. He only wants to impeach the president because Trump is a white guy. Ellison hates white people.

They should have asked Ellison who bombed Pearl Harbor.
What a bunch of misleading tripe. There is no chance that any Democrat or Trump Hater will get an impeachment investigation or charge past an Official HoR Committee.
What these dissemblers are doing it to try and give the impression that Democrats actually have a say in this matter.
They can’t even convene an official House panel on the subject unless it is called by the majority panel chairman. The only thing they could possibly do is hold extra-congressional publicity stunts outside the formal Congressional venues. They would, of course, get treatment from MSM like it is a for-reals something, but it’s all play acting and fronting. Nothing here.
Investigate Ellison for sedition and treason. There’s a lot of leaves to turn over on that guy.
Ellison is the proverbial camel’s nose in the tent.
His congressional district one of the wealthiest white liberal enclaves in the entire state. And they are all so smug and proud of themselves for their progressive attitudes. “Look at us. We voted for a black man. And he’s a Muslim, too! We are awesome! Woo!” (Just don’t let any of those people in our neighborhood.)
Witness the real hate and antipathy toward America in the Left. If this bizarre hater Ellison becomes the Chairman of the DNC, it will the consequence of the propensity of left wing lowlifes that rule the Democratic to be susceptible to Stockholm Syndrome. They actually sympathize and identify with the 9/11 terrorists and others who seek to destroy Western culture.
Why don’t they just start an investigation? Trump will withstand it and then they can just shut up.
Wonder why he still keeps his slave name? Hopefully after elected head of DNC he’ll re-brand with something like Muhammed al Detroiti.
Just playing to their uneducated, narrow minded, soft headed followers. More stuff to excite the leftists. Democrats better realize what they are doing letting the leftists take over their party - or maybe they have already and it is too late.
this coming from an idiot who thinks pearl harbor was bombed by the Germans
Hes got company folks! pelosi can’t work with the new president “Bush”, Maxine waters thinks russia attacked North Korea (crimea) and senator conyers believes if you weigh down one side of an island it could tip over. words cannot describe!
Forget it, he’s on a roll. (LOL!)
For the sake of the dem party, Ellison is certainly no good at all. He can only bring the party closer to it’s final doom.
For the sake of America loving Americans, he’s good, as bringing the dems to their final doom is long over due. The MSM must do their part and bring his word to the people.
I think Ellison needs to keep ranting about impeachment. It’s good for America.
Orthodontically speaking, I would love to knock his front teeth down his throat with a spinning back hammer-fist. Done correctly, the gag-reflex forces him to swallow the teeth before they can be retrieved for surgical-reimplantation.
Doesn't just rearrange his smile... it also chisels new shapes into his lower alimentary canal. Translation...
...he may start pooping oregami!
LOL! The Democrats...The party of intellectual giants! ;!
Ellison Accepted Thousands From Wife-Beating Saudi Donor
Minnesota Rep. and DNC chair frontrunner Keith Ellison accepted thousands in campaign donations from a wife-beating Saudi donor, the Washington Free Beacon reports. Unlike other Democrats who received donations from Ibrahim Al-Rashid, Ellison has yet to return the money.
Al-Rashid was convicted on charges of domestic violence after he violently assaulted his estranged wife, as reported by the Free Beacon.
Adding to the questions swirling around the tainted donations is the fact that Nasser Al-Rashid, Ibrahims father, is an adviser to the Saudi royal family and a Clinton Foundation donor.
The nations first Muslim congressman, Ellison has faced scrutiny over anti-Semitic comments he has made, as well as his ties to radical anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. (RELATED: Democratic Donor Says Keith Ellison Clearly An Anti-Semite)
In a 2010 speech to a largely Muslim audience, Ellison claimed that Jews have been mobilized by Israel to do its bidding in America, as reported by The Daily Caller. (RELATED: New Audio: Keith Ellison Claimed Jews Mobilized By Israel To Do Its Bidding In America)
Ellison floated the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory while speaking at one of multiple fundraisers he headlined on behalf of a Libyan-born activist who said Palestinians should take the jihad way against Israel.

Even before those comments came to light, the Anti-Defamation League called for Ellison to be disqualified from consideration for DNC chair over similar comments from the same speech in which Ellison implied Israel controls American foreign policy.

As originally reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation, Keith Ellison once proposed creating a separate nation just for blacks in America.
Ellison also called the Constitution the best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples. (RELATED: Black Congressmen Refuse To Condemn Ellisons Past Proposal For A Black State)

All products of public school?
My question is ...why do they think it means Hillary becomes President?
If they impeach the Trump/Pence campaign, then wouldn’t it actually fall to the Ryan?
Or are they thinking they could make the case she wins by default? Man or man could the Republican controlled House and Senate then go after the Clinton crime family! Two Clinton Presidents and both get impeached...history and destruction of the Democrat Party continues...
Ok, I’m confused. Is Ellison asking for impeachment as a Muslim, a Communist, a Democrat or a radical activist?
