In the wake of the Capitol riot, the House of Representatives is in the process of voting to impeach President Trump for the second time. 

But, it’s not only democrats that are in support; five House republicans are on board and will vote “yea.” 

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), Rep. John Katko (NY-24), Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler (WA-3) and Fred Upton (MI-6) will join their 218 democratic colleagues in the impeachment soiree, turning their backs on President Trump. 

Katko was the first republican to come out for the impeachment, saying in a statement: “To allow the president of the United States to incite this attack without consequence is a direct threat to the future of our democracy. For that reason, I cannot sit by without taking action. I will vote to impeach the president.” 

Following Katko, Cheney announced she will also vote to impeach the president. 

“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” she said. “Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President. I will vote to impeach the President.” 

Rep. Herrera Beutler said the president “incited a riot to halt the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to the next,” and that she “will vote to impeach him.” 

Rep. Fred Upton shared a similar statement, saying Congress must hold him “to account and send a clear message that our country cannot and will not tolerate any effort by any president to impede the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next.” 

Rep. Adam Kinzinger also joined in. 

“If these actions – the Article II branch inciting a deadly insurrection against the Article I branch – are not worthy of impeachment, then what is an impeachable offense? I will vote in favor of impeachment,” Kinzinger said in a statement. 

Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced at least one article of impeachment against Trump on Monday, charging Trump with one article of “incitement of insurrection.” 

The effort is being led by Democratic Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Ted Lieu of California, the Daily Caller reports.

    There is a pro America agenda that Trump brought to the constituents, and the Swamp, the old “country club” GOP party of backroom deals. No way to conciliate both different directions.

Psaki Responds To Biden Calling Reporter A ‘Stupid Son Of A B****’

Published

Jen Psaki

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary responded to Democrat President Joe Biden calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” for asking about the inflation crisis.

“The President, the President called Peter, and [Peter Doocy] confirmed this, so this is only why I’m speaking to this, and if you have private conversations with the president, I will assure you I’m not going to convey that on your behalf,” Psaki said. “But Peter spoke to this, the President called him, he conveyed to him that it was nothing personal man and also acknowledged that all of you are going to ask him a range of questions. So I think that speaks for itself.”

Biden called Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” after Doocy asked if the inflation crisis would hurt the Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

“Do you think inflation is a political liability for midterms?” Doocy asked.

“It’s a great asset, more inflation,” Biden responded. “What a stupid son of a b****.”

Doocy reacted to the incident in multiple interviews, revealing that Biden called him afterward and told him “it’s nothing personal, pal,” but Biden notably never apologized.

“When the president calls from the Oval Office and he says ‘it’s nothing personal, pal.’ And you know, I wasn’t particularly upset about what had happened anyway,” Doocy said on the Guy Benson Show. “I think that that’s enough just to kind of put it behind us. And I know now how much attention people pay to off-color comments like that from the president. But I think that he wanted to just clear the air and he wanted to address it, and he wanted to make sure that he didn’t that I didn’t think he was talking to me in a malicious way. And so it was a nice call. We talked for a couple of minutes right after I did Brett Baer show last night.”

“So the word ‘sorry’ was not expressed,” Guy said.

“It was not. But that’s OK,” Doocy replied.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.
