Joe Manchin is a voice of reason in the Democratic caucus and they would be wise to listen to him before it is too late.
The left is ready to walk the plank and try to impeach Trump without the votes in the Senate. Repeating the same mistake the GOP made with Clinton which made Bill more popular with the public, not less.
America doesn’t like impeachment as a solution as we believe our politicians should try to govern and work out there differences and compromise.
Speaking to Neil Cavuto Manchin ruined what is left of the liberal impeachment fantasy.
“So disgusting. It was horrible, Neil. No one should approve of that, and I hope she doesn’t talk to her son that way either. You know, what can you say? I can’t in any way condone that. That’s not how we act in West Virginia,” Manchin responded. “It’s not how we talk about public leaders. We might disagree with each other, but we try to get through it, we try to find a pathway forward.”
He continued, “To act like that is awful and to speak like that is even more deplorable. I am so sorry. I want to apologize to all Americans, any sitting Congressperson — there’s 535 of us there — 100 senators and 435 Congresspeople. We should have better manners than that, I assure you.”
According to the Washington Examiner, Joe Manchin put the Democrats on notice telling them he thinks it’s “crazy” for Democrats to be talking about impeachment without hearing the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which has yet to reveal any evidence of collusion between the president and Russia.
Trump destroyed the hapless Democrat as well calling her an absolute disgrace.
“I thought her comments were disgraceful. This is a person that I don’t know. I assume she’s new. I think she dishonored herself and I think she’s dishonored her family,” Trump said.
“Using language like that in front of her son and whoever else was there, I thought that was a disgrace and a dishonor to her and to her family. I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America.”
From Fox News: Freshman U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib wasted no time in calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump just hours after being sworn in.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters Thursday night, the Michigan Democrat and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress said of Trump:
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.’”
Tlaib’s proclamation came hours after the Detroit Free Press published her op-ed calling for Trump’s impeachment.
“President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country,” Tlaib wrote.
“Each passing day brings more pain for the people most directly hurt by this president, and these are days we simply cannot get back. The time for impeachment proceedings is now.”
To remove a sitting president, the constitution requires conviction of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” The impeachment process would further require the consent of both the House and two-thirds of the Senate, which is still a Republican majority.
