Democrats Talk Of An ‘Impeachment Clock’ For Trump

 

WASHINGTON
Democratic leaders aren’t calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

But they’re getting closer.

To one Democratic congressman, the president’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey reminded him of the “doomsday clock,” a symbol that warns about the likelihood of nuclear war.

We should maybe have an impeachment clock,” Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., said on Wednesday. “And if we did, I think yesterday moved us about an hour closer to having that need.”

Pocan said he had thought Democrats in the House of Representatives needed to use the threat of impeachment as a “tool” to make the administration follow the law.

“I would argue this has got to still be on the table as an option, especially if, indeed, there was obstruction of justice by the firing of the FBI director,” said Pocan, first vice chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

DEMOCRATS ONCE BLAMED COMEY; NOW THEY’R E DEFENDING HIM!

President Trump’s seemingly abrupt decision Tuesday to fire FBI Director James Comey was made at the recommendation of top Justice Department officials who claimed that his controversial handling of the Hillary Clinton email case last year rendered him unfit for the position.

President Trump’s seemingly abrupt decision Tuesday to fire FBI Director James Comey was made at the recommendation of top Justice Department officials who claimed that his controversial handling of the Hillary Clinton email case last year rendered him unfit for the position.


A senior White House official told Fox News it was purely “coincidental” that the firing occurred on the same day Comey faced scrutiny for giving faulty testimony about emails sent from Clinton aide Huma Abedin to Anthony Weiner.

Rather, Comey had been the subject of a review by the very top of the Trump Justice Department. Newly confirmed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein penned an extensive memo for Attorney General Jeff Sessions outlining concerns with Comey’s conduct during and after the Clinton email probe.

The memo said “almost everyone agrees that the Director made serious mistakes.” Rosenstein wrote that he could not defend Comey’s handling of the end of the investigation, and could not understand “his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken.”

The first count against Comey, according to Rosenstein, was his July 5, 2016 announcement during which he alleged Clinton and her colleagues were “extremely careless” in handling classified material on her personal email and server but also said the FBI would not recommend charges.

The memo said Comey was “wrong to usurp” then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s authority.

“It is not the function of the Director to make such an announcement,” Rosenstein wrote, adding that Comey “at most” should have said the FBI had finished its investigation and presented findings to prosecutors.

Dem Rep. Maxine Waters Smears AG Sessions As A Racist, “A Throwback To The Days Of Jim Crow”…

 

Hey Maxine, below is a link to an article YOU and others in your own party really needs to read! Here’s just a snippet of this GREAT article that each and every person of color ( I was just going to say Black person, but WHITE people dont know whats the right way to describe you without being called RACIST! )…….Papa Mike

Hatred of America and contempt for its guardians among the police and the military is the social gospel of the left. For nearly half a century this hatred has been the unwavering theme of the “progressive” movement in our universities and our streets and in the Democratic Party; its practical agendas are the destruction of the culture of individual liberty and accountability at home, and America’s retreat abroad. This is what Republicans and all Americans, black and white, should be concerned about and what they should be joining forces to defeat”.

 

Another Day, Another New Low For Maxine.

Via NTK:

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) tossed baseless accusastions at the Trump administration Monday in an appearance on The Washington Post podcast “Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart.”

Here are the lowlights:

* Waters described Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a “throwback to the days of Jim Crow,” equating Sessions with the era of segregation. “I think [Sessions] is a racist and I think he absolutely believes it’s his job to keep minorities in their place.” She added that Sessions would like to go back to the days of segregation. (9:30 – 12:00)

* As evidence of Sessions’ racism, Waters cited an instance where girls in traditional southern dresses greeted Trump and Sessions during the transition period. Waters’ implication was that Sessions and Trump enjoyed the clothing because it reminded them of slavery. The group, “The Azalea Trail Maids,” wears colorful traditional dresses to events. (13:50)
