On Sunday, Washington state Democrat Reps. Denny Heck, Kim Schrier, Suzan DelBene and Derek Kilmer came out in favor of the measure. The group’s announcement comes after over 10 Democrats voiced support for impeachment. The handful of lawmakers included Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA), who serves of the Vice Chair of the House Democrat Caucus, citing former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony on Wednesday.
The number of Democrats backing impeachment stands at 107, just 11 lawmakers away from the majority of the House Democrat caucus.
The latest tally House Democrats backing impeachment comes after the chamber’s judiciary panel announced the launch of its so-called “impeachment investigation.” On Friday, the committee asked a judge to allow access to secret grand jury material underlying the Mueller report.
The House Judiciary Committee is also expected to go to court this week to try to enforce a subpoena against former White House counsel Donald McGahn, a key Mueller witness. That suit is expected to challenge the White House’s claim that former White House employees have “absolute immunity” from testifying before Congress.
Appearing Sunday on ABC’s This Week, Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) explained his committee is “investigating whether to approve articles of Impeachment before the committee.”
“We have impeachment resolutions before the committee. We are conducting investigations to determine whether we should report those impeachment resolutions to the House or whether we should draft our own and report them to the House,” said the New York Democrat.
“We’re considering those resolutions. we’ll make a determination after we get more evidence as to the president’s crimes that we had from the Mueller report and also from other things, violations of the emoluments clause, his failure to defend the constitution against repeated Russian attacks,” he added. “We’re investigating whether to approve articles of Impeachment before the Committee.”
Despite fresh support to launch impeachment hearings, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appears unmoved by the efforts.
“No, I’m not trying to run out the clock,” Pelosi told reporters last week.“We will proceed when we have what we need to proceed — not one day sooner.”
“Everybody has the liberty and the luxury to espouse their own position and to criticize me for trying to go down the path in the most determined, positive way,” she added. “Again, their advocacy for impeachment only gives me leverage.”
Moreover, some political observers believe Mueller’s testimony likely took the wind of the of sails regarding impeachment.
“I think the candidates on the stump are being politically realistic; the people back in Washington aren’t. Nancy Pelosi, who is a wintry eyed realist, is having none of it: she thinks impeachment is a fools’ errand and I have to say I agree with her,” said William Galston, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
“Mueller’s lackluster testimony likely gave Speaker Pelosi the ammunition to withstand calls for impeachment inquiries, or hearings, from the left flank of her party,” said Brown University political science professor Wendy Schiller. “She has always maintained it is a losing political proposition even if the House voted to impeach Trump because the Senate will not vote to convict Trump and remove him from office.”
Earlier this month, the House voted 332-95 to table a resolution launching an impeachment inquiry introduced by Rep. Al Green. (D-TX).

“@RepCummings is a champion in the Congress and the country for civil rights and economic justice, a beloved leader in Baltimore, and deeply valued colleague,” Pelosi tweeted Saturday. “We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership. #ElijahCummingsIsAPatriot.”

“A massive beat down caught on camera in the district,” said one Fox 5 reporter, before another added “More than a dozen teens carrying out the attack near a D.C. hotel, Fox 5’s Ike Ejiochi is on top of the story for us tonight, he’s live in Northwest with the details.”
The video then turns to a live feed of Ejiochi on the ground at the scene of the horrific attack.
“Jim, this was a terrific attack,” says Ejiochi. Big League Politics edited the clip for brevity, but Ejiochi did not correct himself, or use another adjective to describe the beating. Full video is available at Fox 5’s website.
According to Fox 5’s own reporting, it was a truly disgusting attack. Over 12 African American teens, who may be as young as 13 or 14, are scene punching, kicking, pushing, and spitting on two white men in video captured on local security cameras.
It is not currently known whether the attack was racially motivated.
Video of the incident captured by a surveillance camera shows the two men being surrounded while walking toward the doors of the hotel. One of the victims was able to get inside of the lobby while the other victim was punched and pushed to the ground after being swarmed by several of the attackers.
Police say the suspects could be as young as 13 or 14 years old. The man who is seen on the video being struck, kicked and even spit on was transported to a nearby hospital. He suffered injuries to the head and left eye socket.
The second victim suffered a swollen left eye and was also admitted to the hospital. He told police that before the attack began, one of the suspects screamed “That’s him,” and pointed to the man he was with.
The D.C. Police Department is currently seeking “the public’s assistance in identifying suspects in reference to an Aggravated Assault offense” related to the incident.
The police department posted a Tweet about the incident, and included a YouTube video of the horrific attack:
Big League Politics contacted Fox 5 D.C. to see if they intended to describe the terrible attack as “terrific” and did not receive an immediate response.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office has turned Mueller’s 448-page report — which found no criminal conspiracy with Russia and declined to make an assessment on obstruction — into a six-page document highlighting what they consider to be its most damning findings, The Hill reported.
The six-page document, dubbed “Exposing the Truth,” will be distributed Tuesday to Democrat lawmakers to guide their “outreach to voters,” according to the outlet.
“Members will go home and have to engage their constituencies on what’s next — how do we hold this president accountable?” a leadership aide told The Hill. “So we put it all at their fingertips.”
The memo was coordinated between Pelosi’s office and the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, where Mueller will testify for a total of five hours.
In addition, Pelosi’s office is launching a “social media blitz” and planning to tweet more than 20 quotes from Mueller’s report with the hashtag “RetweetTheReport.”
The leadership aide told The Hill that they hope to see more Republicans “come out” as has Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), who recently switched from Republican to independent. He is also facing a tough re-election fight.
“I think you might see, after Mueller, potentially some more Amashes come out. Maybe not for impeachment, but definitely not being able to walk away from the facts,” the aide said.

To this day Green still wants President Trump impeached, he will find the crime later.
In May President Trump blasted liberal hack Rep. Al Green (D-TX) over his continued threats of impeachment.
Trump tweeted, “You can’t impeach a president for creating the best economy ever.”
But kook Al Green still wants President Trump impeached.
On Wednesday Al Green tweeted that it is time to remove President Trump due to “racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia…”
Green is a dummy.
So now Democrats are going to waste time on this latest impeachment nonsense instead of helping the people of the US.

Drum penned, “Liberals Need to Be Lincolnesque In Our Latest Race War” on Monday in which he argued that liberals must be more ruthless and aggressive against their white enemies. Ironically, the far-left Drum is a white male himself.
“The Republican Party must be committed to building a lasting relationship within the African American community year-round, based on mutual respect and with a spirit of caring,” the Republican National Committee wrote after the embarrassing loss in 2012.
The Republican constituents did not pay much attention to the recommendation from their party’s establishment, and went with the boisterous and bombastic Donald Trump as their presidential candidate in 2016. They shocked the experts with a massive victory, which Drum considers evidence confirming his preconceived notions that all Republicans are evil racists.
“They never thought they could get away with something like this in the 21st century, and normally they would have been right: it would have lost them as many votes among educated whites as it won them among working-class whites,” Drum wrote. “But after eight years of a black president in the White House, racial tensions were ratcheted up just enough that Trump could get away with it.”
Drum laments the fact that Republicans are shying away from politically correct platitudes in the age of Trump and replacing them with ‘American First’ nationalism. The only choice at this point, he argues, is to crush Trump and his white working class base of support, once and for all.
“Republicans believe that wrecking the fabric of the country is their only hope of staying in power, and they’re right. If working-class whites abandon them even a little bit, they’re toast,” Drum wrote.
“So all we can do is try to crush them,” he added.
Trump’s rise has exposed the Left’s truly sinister ambitions. They not only want to prevent America from being great again, but also harbor cruel and racist intentions toward white people. Western Civilization will not survive unless the Left is kept out of power in 2020 and beyond.
