As the President continues to face serious pressure from House Democrats and their “formal impeachment inquiry”, he is lashing out at members of his own party for their reluctance to fight with him.
Legislators such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff have finally acquiesced to calling whatever it is that they are doing “impeachment”…at least in some regard. This has someone satiated the thirst for revenge among the more radical Democrats in America.
But what about the Republicans? Are they allowing the left to walk all over them in this matter?
President Trump seems to think so.
President Donald Trump called on fellow Republicans on Monday to “get tougher and fight” against the quickly moving House impeachment inquiry as Democrats blocked a GOP bid to censure Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, a leader of the impeachment inquiry.
Trump, defending his conduct at a rollicking Cabinet meeting, insisted his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that sparked the impeachment inquiry was entirely unproblematic. And he accused Democrats of proceeding with impeachment only to bolster their chances in 2020.
Trump also called out Republicans for not sticking together, pointing a finger at Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, who has emerged as his most notable GOP critic.
The President’s words were unmistakable.
Trump, meanwhile, said some GOP lawmakers “are great fighters. But they have to get tougher and fight because the Democrats are trying to hurt the Republican Party for the (2020) election.”
Compounding the issue of support is President Trump’s decision-making in regard to Syria and our Kurdish allies this week, which was wildly unpopular among some of the more prominent members of the Republican party.
