Good afternoon fellow Seekers,
Schumer and the Dems aren’t trying to avoid a “constitutional crisis”, they’re trying to cover their own collective asses. They have been trying to cover Clinton’s, the politicized intel agencies and the corrupt DNC. Had Hillary been elected all of this would be under the literal rug. In the oval office that is.
Trump has said repeatedly that he has no intention to fire Mueller and try to usurp whatever power the council may have. All the legislation is aimed at is doing the very same thing to Trump’s powers as president. They’ve been trying to usurp damn near everything he’s done to this point. If not by legislative means…certainly by using the MSM in that very effort. Enough is enough.
Here’s more from Randy Desoto and Western Journalism…
Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich dismissed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats’ stated reason for avoiding a “constitutional crisis” by wanting to pass legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto the previous day he saw “no indication that Mueller’s going to be fired,” and therefore has no plans to take up such legislation on the Senate floor.
“I don’t think the president’s going to do that, and just as a practical matter, even if we passed (the bill), why would he sign it?” McConnell said.
Pavlich was not buying Schumer’s alarmist language.
“Democrats aren’t interested in preventing a constitutional crisis, they’re interested in protecting their political talking point of Russia because that is really all they have at this point,” she said.
The legislation, drafted by both Republican and Democrat members on the committee, would codify regulations stipulating that only a senior Justice Department official can fire a special counsel.
Further, it would require an “expedited judicial review” within 10 days of the firing to determine if there had been “good cause.” If the review determines there was none, the special counsel would be reinstated.
“They got together, so I feel an obligation to keep my word and move forward,” Grassley said when asked if he would still give the bill a vote, The Hill reported.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who is one of the members who introduced the legislation, said he will vote in committee for “institutional protections” for the office of special counsel.
“I leave it up to the majority leader how to run the floor,” Graham added when asked about whether his bill will see a full Senate vote.
The legislation will face a difficult road to passage if it is introduced.
First, the bill would need to garner 60 votes to avoid a filibuster. Then, it would need to pass the more conservative House of Representatives.
If it succeeded making it through Congress, as McConnell pointed out, President Donald Trump would almost certainly veto it, citing it as an unlawful usurpation of his executive authority.
The House and the Senate would then need to override the veto with a two-thirds vote in each chamber.
