Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI) offered a nuanced position on the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Sunday, claiming that such divisive proceedings could have terrible negative impacts on the country heading into next year’s election.
“We are so close to an election,” Lawrence told podcaster Charlie LeDuff of the No BS News Hour. “I will tell you, sitting here knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of taking him out of office. I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable.”
She told LeDuff that she intends to have a “discussion with the party and with the caucus” to encourage them to censure President Trump rather than impeach him.
“I want to censure,” Lawrence said. “I want it on the record that the House of Representatives did their job and they told this president and any president coming behind him that this is unacceptable behavior and, under our Constitution, we will not allow it.”
Perhaps sensing that the impeachment inquiry was not going very well for the Democrats, Lawrence had reversed her previous policy of supporting impeachment against the President.
“There has been clear examples of violations of policy, rules, and overstepping power,” Lawrence said in a press release from Oct. 3. “I feel very confident that we must move forward with impeachment.”
“The President’s lawlessness and betrayal of our Constitution confirms the need for the House’s impeachment inquiry,” she said four days after releasing her initial press release about impeachment.
However, Lawrence’s new position did not even last two full days. After she was bombarded with outrage from deranged leftists, she flip-flopped on her position yet again. She now supports impeaching President Trump once more, regardless of how much damage it may cause the nation.
“I was an early supporter for impeachment in 2017,” Lawrence told the Metro Times. “The House Intelligence Committee followed a very thorough process in holding hearings these past two weeks. The information they revealed confirmed that this President has abused the power of his office, therefore I continue to support impeachment.”
“However, I am very concerned about Senate Republicans and the fact that they would find this behavior by the President acceptable,” she added.
The Democrats are all-in on impeachment regardless of how much it backfires on them. House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has admitted as much.
“We don’t foreclose the possibility of more depositions, more hearings,” Schiff said during an interview with CNN. “We are in the process of getting more documents all the time. So that investigative work is being done.”
Democrats are being held hostage by their radicalized constituents, who have been gaslighted by the fake news media for years and demand President Trump’s head on a platter regardless of the evidence.
House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop
Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.
House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.
They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).
“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”
“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.
However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.
Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:
Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.
Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.
According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.
Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…
President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.
“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”
Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
