3 Stooges blabber on about Impeachment inquiry


They're not the sharpest tools in the shed:

In a statement, U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-5th, said she was disappointed with Pelosi’s announcement of an impeachment inquiry into Trump. The 5th District includes Forsyth County and much of Northwest North Carolina.

“I cannot say I’m at all surprised,” Foxx said. “Obsession over the 2016 election results has consumed the Democratic Party and dominated (its) agenda as the House majority."

This phone call happened in Summer of 2019. And one of the reasons why Trump still thinks it's "okay" to use foreign governments to help him win elections is because people like you have done absolutely nothing to dissuade him or reign him in. In fact, you've actively opposed any investigations into what actually happened back in 2016, which proves you know what he did was wrong. Here's another idiot:

U.S. Rep. Ted Budd, R-13th, released a statement after Pelosi spoke about the impeachment inquiry. The 13th District includes Davidson and Davie counties.

“President Trump is right to release the full, unredacted transcript of his call with the Ukrainian president,” Budd said in the written statement. “That’s the first-hand account of the call."

“It’s incredibly reckless for House Democrats to base an impeachment inquiry on the second-hand account of a whistle-blower whose attorney worked for (Democratic Sen.) Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton,” Budd said.

Again, logic is not one of their stronger suits. First of all, various reports have described the transcript that will be turned over as "rough." That's the administration's description, not media or the Dems. Second, the whistle-blower is a Primary source. He actually overheard the conversation. Describing him as "second-hand" means you really don't understand the words you are using, and that's more than a little unsettling. It calls everything you say into question. Here's another:

U.S. Rep. Mark Walker, R-6th, said in a statement Tuesday that said in part, “House Democrats have been tilting at windmills in search of impeachment for the last three years, and they now think they have found their Don Quixote in a leaker who is pushing secondhand rumors.”

“After saying it ‘divides the country,’ Speaker Pelosi now says impeachment is a ‘healing process’ and is taking an action supported by barely one-third of American voters,” Walker said.

Again with the "second-hand" nonsense. Starting to see a pattern here, proving the misinformation machine has been at work already.

On a side note, Walker should be (very) thankful NC doesn't have a recall election mechanism in place, because he is necktie-deep in the bribery scandal that brought Robin Hayes into a courtroom. He took the money from Greg Lindberg, and he proceeded to intervene on his behalf with the office of the Insurance Commissioner. That's archetypal quid pro quo behavior, and should be an express ticket out of Congress.



I stand corrected.

Or "sit" corrected, I should say. In the above commentary I criticized both Budd and Walker for calling the complaint "second-hand," because I had been led to believe from (numerous) news stories that the whistle-blower actually overheard the phone conversation in question. But after reading the complaint itself, it appears the complainant had heard this from multiple sources.

Doesn't make the complaint less legitimate, because he wouldn't have filed it unless he was certain of the validity. I just wanted to clarify my mistake.
