When Nancy Pelosi hands the Speaker’s gavel to Kevin McCarthy, this epitaph should be attached to Ms. Pelosi and all of her Do-Nothing Democrats. (Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters should get specially engraved millstones.) But I digress.
This morning’s headlines aren’t shy in declaring the Do-Nothing Democrats’ accomplishments and failures. House Judiciary Committee Democrats got their butts whipped by Corey Lewandowski yesterday. Jerry Nadler got twisted into a pretzel, first by Mr. Lewandowski, then by Ranking Member Doug Collins, then by John Ratcliffe. By the end of the day, Nadler was a pathetic puddle of a man. He clearly isn’t fit to be a committee chairman, especially chairman of an historic committee like the House Judiciary Committee.
The resolution would allow House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., to designate hearings from the committee and subcommittees into an impeachment investigation. Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is scheduled to testify next week.
Armstrong, who voted against the measure along with all other Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, said the inquiry is taking up time and House Democrats “cannot get their act together on it.”
The Armstrong mentioned is North Dakota Representative Kelly Armstrong.
He introduced the Justice Reinvestment Initiative Act earlier this year which he said is a bipartisan issue that aims to reduce recidivism, curb addiction and reduce taxpayer spending on criminal justice. Armstrong said the act would focus on nonviolent and drug-related offenses.
Armstrong said he will prioritize the trade agreement, which he believes will pass soon. “It’s tough in ag country right now, and this will do a lot to help,” he said. “It’s a better deal for farmers, and it’s a better deal for the United States.”
Armstrong said his attention this session is also turned to prescription drug package bills that could reduce costs for lifesaving medicines and farm worker immigration reform.
Now that sounds like a positive, pro-growth agenda. I believe that there are some Democrats who would like to be productive. I just don’t see many of them in House leadership positions. This is a great sample of what happened during yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing:
Pop the popcorn and sit back in your recliner. The Do-Nothing Democrats might be unproductive but they’re fun to ridicule. That’s the Do-Nothing Democrats’ legacy.
