Skip to comments.Rep. Khanna: Trump Iran actions could be 'another impeachable offense' (IMPEACHMENT HELD HOSTAGE - DAY 20)
Posted on 01/07/2020 1:39:56 AM PST by Libloather
Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., a member of the House Committee on Armed Services, spoke to MSNBC on Monday and discussed the war powers resolution that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced she would introduce to the House days amid escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran.
Khanna described the Trump administrations strike last week on Gen. Qasem Soleimani as "unconstitutional," and said Congress needs to "reassert" its role by passing the resolution. He expressed confidence that the vote to pass the resolution would be bipartisan. Khanna said the president would violate the Constitution if he disregards the resolution should it be passed, adding that doing so would be "frankly another impeachable offense."
Khanna said that adding that offense to the articles of impeachment is an option that is "definitely on the table." "It should be scary to people what this president is doing," Khanna said. "No regard for the decision-making process, no consultation with Congress. This is exactly what the framers intended the impeachment power to be used for. When asked about Trumps tweet that he would use Twitter to notify Congress of his courses of action, Khanna said "it's not just that he has to notify Congress. He has to get Congress' approval."

Americans see all of this. They see that once again the Dams side with the terrorists.
Abuse of power by appartchiks like this one (and if consodered attempted coup it is treason) and siding with terrorists.
High Treason by these dems if we at war can be punishable by the death penalty.
Methinks the democrat party is rushing towards their demise.
I would suggest that that they (the Democratically controlled House) had their one big opportunity, and burned the ‘bridge down’ with the two articles that they voted upon.
If they go to some second, third or fourth impeachment...the public will only start laughing because they can’t achieve anything of value. They are simply wasting a big chunk of man-hours...with no gains.
The bigger worry now for them...with this failure, is the November election (not just Trump winning, but the House flipping with a 50-seat gain). Then you walk into 2021 with Schiffy being investigated over his behavior and mismanagement.
Trump wore a clashing polka dot tie with a striped suit yesterday. Impeachable offense?
All of Americas success since 2016 is all Trump, the rats have done NOTHING for the American people or America in 4 years 4 YEARS NOTHING!
We need to get muslims out of our government at every level NOW.
Proof that the first impeachment charge was a dud. From now on Trump’s ‘impeachment file’ will stay open. New charges will be added on a weekly basis as and when events happen, and will continue as long as Trump is in power or the Democrats are in the majority.
Has anyone heard from John Kerry since the attack? Did he violate the Logan Act again and meet Salami at the airport?
He was spotted wearing a spotted tie???
I see a YUGE gain.
Every minute they spend on this is a moment they aren't spending passing laws to enhance Fedzilla, impose onerous regulations, reward the criminal and tax the honest one.
Another Ivy law school waste (this one Yale). It’s a new type of inbreeding - but just as deleterious.
Now the average American has had enough and after Trump is overwhelmingly reelected and the House returned to adult control this November, beginning next year the final cleanup and "justice phase" can proceed with the public fully on board with the program.
Trump will campaign on being the most impeached president.
The left continues to campaign for Trump. They have no idea what they are doing. Their hate has made them blind and insane.
wow! too many reps have no real knowledge or understanding of their position they have been elected to. Just think they can make it up according their feelings or thoughts on matters, instead of actual constitutional and Rep rules.
what a flimsy self serving bunch of folks we got in that branch of govt.
Another blithering idiot! Geez, there are a lot of them.
So could winning an election if that is your definition.
dearest ro: You are the King of Nitwits. Please resign today and wander the country pleading for forgiveness.
