Republicans weigh in on formal impeachment inquiry against Trump Republicans weigh in on formal impeachment inquiry against TrumpRepublicans have weighed in on the formal impeachment in Corry of President Trump House, minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, spoke directly after speaker. Nancy Pelosi made the announcement Tuesday, he said Pelosi quote, does not speak for America. When it comes this issue. This election is over. I realized 2016. Did not turn out the way speaker Pelosi wanted it to happen, but she cannot change the laws of this Congress. She cannot lie unilateral beside peachment inquiry. What She Said Today made no difference of what’s been going on, it’s no different than what nadler’s been trying to do, it’s time to put the public before politics. Thank you. More insight into the GOP response was bringing Republican strategist Joseph pinion Joseph. Thank you. So much for being with us, what do you make of Kevin McCarthy’s response there in, and is that going to be? The Republicans are going to handle this going forward in? This is just one more misguided attempt March slow march to impeachment been going on for three years. I was even going back to before President Trump even took office, so I think that’s not going to change. I think they both sides are pretty much. I think Democrats believe that they found and you’ll ever hear on the they can try to use a try to see if they can sway public opinion. But I would only caution that when you look at the extensive amount of time and effort that was spent on the Mueller report and the fact that that somehow did not sway the American public to even have an approval rating, I’m across party lines above 50 % People saying that they wanted to go to impeachment, I’m it would seem to behoove Democrat said they might want to be careful what they wish for you. I think what I supposed to produce earlier. I said like I think, if, if you’re driving the car and the police pull you over for having the excess noise in your radio and the first thing you said them. If there’s a body in the trunk will now you’re, probably going to end up in the backseat of a car, and someone has a legal responsibility, is the body still there? I’M sorry, I think when you have the president United States out of his own mouth, I’m saying that yes, wait. Maybe 80 was that was pulled back on in that. Yes, on top of that, that did have conversations about corruption and in that corruption didn’t mention right. For breakfast Joe Biden, the son, that there is some level of responsibility to see what’s happening there, having said that, we know that when it comes to President Trump offered better and worse, there is what happened is what the President says and there’s also how the public Reacts to it there. I will again caution to say that there is a chance that Democrats could open the proverbial trunk and all this there is there proverbial bloody glove with. If both President Trump and Joe Biden have had issues with their children when it comes to children profiting off their political status, so president deflect attention on some of his questions, questionable Behavior by pointing it out another that doesn’t necessarily mean that he didn’t do something wrong. Did the president conduct himself in a manner that was unethical? Did he conduct himself in the manner that was illegal and then there’s the other matter of the matters? Is this going to mean a hill of beans to the American public I’m? So I think that those are the kind of going through here. I think, with regards to Inna the pot calling the kettle black. It’S politics I mean on the part of the speaker because she doesn’t want to alienate those voters and those Lottery District remembers might have some difficulty if they voted for Joe Biden in the sense that they’re both things that are pitted against each other, so much sweets. The one thing we know for certain is that we don’t have all the facts, I’m having said that, I think, as a general rule, to bolster the president, assuming that that information doesn’t cannot specifically because of the fact that again, he’s actually somehow convinced mainstream media. To talk about do you want Story related to him that they didn’t want to talk about, which was Joe Biden and Hunter Biden have never been popular. That was a lesson the Republican Party learned, wouldn’t even during Bill Clinton. I think again, as I said before, when you have the president and I think sometimes you can take the prisoners word and sometimes the story that is reflected in the actual machines and fax. But when those allegations you come to Forefront, possibility to look into it and I think that’s why you see that unanimity in the Senate. I would be Republicans and Democrats both saying they want to see the report, but I think they actually take a step back and talk about it in the political spectrum and do a political in this notion. I think again.. We spent millions of dollars the motive for they were things in that Mueller report that I think I made many Americans blocks from me know: Katie McFarland to the things were Don mcgahn and all of that information did not leave the majority of the American people saying They wanted to impeach this President, and I think you end up pushing American. You put them in Corners, I’m you pick them against each other. In some ways you rebuild the coalition Trump is very fractured. It’S legal team to deal with an impeachment inquiry. Angry then, what was going on with that? But I mean I know it’s it’s newsworthy, I’m because you have, the speaker of the house was previously done everything in our power to try to hold on to that runaway Portsmouth or caucus that wanted to impeach from they want from AOC in here in New York. To mean green Donna Texas., But I do think again It ultimately, they know what was coming in on some basic level. I think the president has basically dared the Democrats in Congress to open the trunk and see what you find is welcoming. What do you think? I believe that an impeachment proceedings, I’m just going to lead to a second term for President Trump on a silver platter.
