With U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launching impeachment proceedings against President Trump last week, former U.S. Rep. Bill Jenkins believes members of Congress would be wise to remember the lessons learned from the 1998 impeachment of Bill Clinton.
Shortly before voting against a Democrat-backed bill aimed at affirming the country’s commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Rep. Phil Roe challenged progressives to stand behind their posturing on environmental issues.
The congressman said both versions of the bill voted down on the House Wednesday would have treated “immigrants in a fair and humane way.” He said one key provision called for an evaluation of why immigrants are coming to the United States.
U.S. Rep. Phil Roe said he believes the process to nominate the next Veterans Affairs secretary will be different this time after President Donald Trump’s first nomination, Dr. Ronny Jackson, withdrew his name from consideration after a wave of serious allegations crashed against him.
U.S. Rep. Phil Roe said Thursday he had “big-time concerns” with leadership in the FBI and Department of Justice, the two agencies investigation possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and said special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation may be focused on the wrong people.
