Republicans Storm Secure Room, Demand Greater Access To Proceedings On Impeachment Inquiry

Published

on

Republican members of the House of Representatives stormed the secure room where Democrat lawmakers have been questioning witnesses for the impeachment inquiry launched by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, demanding they be given more access to the proceedings.

More than a dozen GOP lawmakers met outside the meeting room, though they were immediately kicked out.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

The impeachment inquiry is centered on allegations that President Trump attempted to pressure Ukrainian President Zelensky to open investigations for his own personal gain, lead by the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight committees.

Only members on those three committees — Republicans and Democrats — have been allowed in the room to ask questions, a fact Democrats have been highlighting as they push back on GOP criticism.

Over the past two weeks, several Republicans not on those committees have tried to get access to the secret depositions and transcripts of those meetings, but this is the largest group to attempt it.

Around 20 Republican lawmakers refused to leave the room during a securing hearing where Defense Department official Laura Cooper was set to testify.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed that the sit-in put on by members of the House GOP derailed Cooper’s testimony, saying it was not clear when it would begin again.

Democratic lawmakers present in the room said that those who participated in the storming of the room brought in cell phones, which violates the rules of the secured room.

“They had no regard for the witness or making sure we can continue to hold the president accountable and ensure we can get to the bottom of this,” Wasserman Schultz said. “If they don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to the substance of evidence, they have to argue process.”

Ms. Lesko spoke to the Washington Times, saying “It’s really unfortunate that they [Democrats] have the votes and apparently they are not following any procedures, any precedents, any rules.”

“I’ll tell you what, if we are in the majority, I would not allow this kind of unfair process to go on,” she went on.

Ivanka Trump Responds To CNN Panel Mocking Trump Supporters, Says What They Did Is ‘Disgusting’

Published

on

A panel on CNN mocked Trump supporters over the weekend in a video that has since gone viral and earned the ire of not only those who back the president, the president himself, but also his family members. Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter came to the defense of millions of Americans who voted for her father in the previous 2016 election, calling what the panel did “disgusting.” In the video, CNN host Don Lemon and friends made fun of Trump fans, calling them “rubes” who can’t read or do basic math. Here’s more on what Ivanka said about the whole fiasco via The Daily Wire: Early Tuesday morning, Trump’s daughter Ivanka took CNN to task for the panel, pointing out that the network constantly bemoans the divisions in the country while making fun of those who don’t vote Democrat. “You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,” Ivanka tweeted. “The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.” https://twitter.com/IvankaTrump/status/1222126462347681793 As The Daily Wire previously reported, the panel consisted of writer Wajahat Ali and Republican consultant Rick Wilson, who claimed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it.” Wilson later went on to dawn a horrible fake southern accent and said, “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb.” Here’s a full transcript…

CNN Panel Mocks Trump Supporters In Viral Video; President Calls Don Lemon ‘Dumbest Man On Television’

Published

on

Popular left-wing news outlet CNN has a well earned reputation for being a little less than trustworthy when it comes to the stories they pursue and cover for their viewers, but what’s worse is how they treat folks who tend to have a different worldview than the one they ascribe to. A recent clip, which has gone viral, of a panel on CNN disparaging Trump supporters is proves this claim to be true, but thankfully, we have a president who isn’t afraid to punch back and to defend his backers when someone attacks them. Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire: In the discussion, which occurred over the weekend, the host, Don Lemon, and two Trump critics, op-ed writer Wajahat Ali and Republican Rick Wilson, suggest that Trump supporters are illiterate “rubes” who can’t read a map or do basic math. Speaking of Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, Wilson said that he “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it” — a line that Lemon found side-splittingly hilarious. Wilson then widened his mockery to include Trump’s “base” of supporters. “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb,” said Wilson, adopting a southern accent. “You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling…” mocked Ali. “Your math, your reading,” said Wilson. “Yes, your reading, you know,” Ali added. “Your geography knowing other countries. Sipping your latte.” “All…
