Morning Greatness: Not Running for GOP Reelection? Get Off the ‘Impeachment’ Committees

Good Tuesday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president has no public events today.

If you aren’t running for reelection, you need to be removed from any House “impeachment” adjacent committee

There are numerous members of the House sitting on the committees involved in the Democrats’ “impeachment” tribunal who are not running for reelection. They need to go. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy must send in reinforcements and move these congressmen somewhere else. He needs to send a message that the voters will be represented in this clown show assault on Trump and the best way to do that is to show the Democrats/resistance media and the public that the politicians in this process will be accountable for their actions by the voters who put them into power.

Let take a walk down memory lane. The House Democrats signed a secret Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the House Oversight Committee under the late Elijah Cummings and Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee (HPSCI) and the batty Maxine Waters of the Financial Services Committee. There may be other Democrat committee chairs involved in some agreement, we don’t know because it’s secret. According to an official with knowledge of the MOU arrangement :“We’d describe (the MOUs) as an agreement to conspire and coordinate their efforts to attack and investigate POTUS. This is not how committee’s normally operate. Dems aren’t interested in legislating. Only attacking POTUS.” This description checks out. If you are not running for relection and you sit on these committees, it’s time to pack your bags. McCarthy needs to man up and send in the clean up team to fill these spots.

There are 15 GOPers in the House who have tapped out of 2020.  Here is a list of representatives who are candidates for redeployment to the House Underwater Basket Weaving Committee:

Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) is on the Armed Services, Natural Resources committees
Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Georgia) is on the Budget, Transportation and Rules committees
Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-Michigan) is on the Armed Services, Transportation committees
Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Indiana) is on the Energy and Commerce committee
Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas) is on the Energy and Commerce, Science committees
Rep. Martha Roby (R-Alabama) is on the Judiciary, Appropriations committees
Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) is on the Intelligence Committee (HPSCI), Armed Services, Agriculture committees
Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) is on the Intelligence Committee (HPSCI)
Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas) is on the Ethics, Joint Economic, Ways and Means committees
Rep. John Shimkus (R-Texas) Energy and Commerce committee
Rep. Bill Flores (T-Texas) Budget, Energy/Commerce committees
Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wisconsin) Judiciary, Foreign Affairs committees
Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) Armed Services committee
Rep. Francis Rooney (R-Florida) Foreign Affairs, Education committees
Rep. Greg Walden (R-Oregon) Energy/Commerce committee

Let’s go, McCarthy. It’s the right thing to do.

Republicans consider moving Jim Jordan to House Intelligence Committee

How about we make Senator Rand Paul Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee?

On Monday night, President Trump held a rally in Lexington, Kentucky to gin up excitement for the state’s election on Tuesday. Senator Rand Paul, one of Kentucky’s senators, was at the rally and called for the corporate media to name the whistleblower. The whistleblower was identified by Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations as Eric Ciaramella and the revelation has been suspiciously ignored by the Pulitzer winner crowd. Why? That’s a rhetorical question.

“I say tonight to the media, ‘Do your job and print his name,’ ” Paul said while pointing to the media in attendance.

If the Republicans were serious about sending a message to the intelligence community after the 2016 coup attempt, put Rand in the chair of the Intel committee because that would be their worst nightmare. Rand is a strong libertarian who is suspicious of all these surveillance magic tricks the IC uses against designated political enemies. He’s always been a critic, he’s solid. I think we can all agree that Senator Richard Burr is utterly useless, it’s time for him to spend more time with his family or whatever or maybe head to another committee, but let’s get some fresh blood in there. I stand with Rand.
