Chip Roy Calls Out Congress

Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas criticized his fellow lawmakers during debate over articles of impeachment Wednesday, pointing out the irony of Democrats’ supposedly renewed interest in the Constitution, while ignoring it daily. “Where is respect for the Constitution when the people’s House daily refuses to do its actual job while shredding federalism and limited government?” he asked.
While Republican and Democratic members spent the day on the floor of the House debating and lamenting the act of impeachment they are expected to vote on Wednesday evening, Roy listed a number of other issues both more pertinent and dire to Americans than impeachment, including: the national debt, taxpayer-funded abortion, unsecured borders, and health care. 
“Today in New York, a young mother will be coerced into abortion by taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood, while we allow the genocide of the unborn in the false name of choice,” he said. (Read more.)

From Townhall:
The floor speeches are still ongoing up on the Hill. President Donald Trump will be impeached by the House. House Democrats will fulfill their 2018 campaign promise to their base to impeach the president simply because he won the 2016 election. They tried to hide it. They tried to say this wasn’t their end goal. Of course, it was—it’s been on their minds since day one of the Trump White House. To suggest that Democrats are unhappy about today’s vote is nonsense. They’ve been lusting for this for the past three years.

Russian collusion, which was exposed as a myth, was going to be their main line of attack before then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his report which torpedoed that narrative. They needed something else. It could be anything. When Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) took to the House floor to give her speech, she invoked how the chamber honors veterans daily and their devotion to service, urging the body to do the same when it comes to honoring their oaths and to defend the Constitution as Americans, not as Republicans or Democrats. That’s quite a call for unity, right? It’s also completely covered in crap. Tlaib’s remarks when she entered Congress in 2018 exposes this whole circus, the entire Democratic Party façade on impeachment. She declared that the new House Democratic majority was going to “impeach the motherf**ker.” I know it seems like several years ago, but there you go. This outburst and Rep. Al Green’s (D-TX) declaration that the Democrats have to impeach Trump in order to prevent his re-election reveal the Left's true intent. We’re impeaching a president because Democrats don’t like him; they hate him. None of the articles that are about to be voted on today meets constitutional standards. (Read more.)
