Bob Goodlatte Holds Hearing that Provides Platform for Discussion of Impeachment


( – promoted by lowkell)

"History will record that on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary met to consider the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama." – Dana Milbank, The Washington Post

The House Republicans can't pass a budget. They can't hold an up/down vote on the Senate's comprehensive immigration reform bill. They won't raise the minimum wage. They won't spare millions of hungry children from cuts to food stamps.

But when it comes to fanning the flames of right-wing animosity toward the president, Reps. Steve King, Louie Gohmert, and Bob Goodlatte are front and center.  Bob Goodlatte didn't actually say the word "impeachment." As Milbank writes, "Republican leaders frown on such labeling because it makes the House majority look, well, crazy."But as the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Goodlatte is responsible for holding the hearing. He is responsible for encouraging the provocative and inflammatory behavior of Steve King and, even worse, Louie Gohmert. He is responsible for providing a platform for extreme accusations and bitter partisanship.

I'm committed to running a strong race. I'm not going to let Goodlatte get away with this reckless leadership. Please support our efforts with a contribution now.

Thank you,
