Rep. Tom Cole: House of Representatives, Pres. Trump, the American people deserve better than a flawed impeachment process
During debate on the articles of impeachment, Rep. Tom Cole (Oklahoma) explains why the impeachment process as conducted by the Democrat majority is flawed and is a disservice to House of Representatives and the American people.
"Thank you Madam Speaker. Madam Speaker, today is a very sad day for all of us - for me personally, for the Rules Committee, (for) the entire House of Representatives, and most importantly for the American people.
For the second time in my life, the House of Representatives will be voting to impeach a president of the United States. But unlike in 1998, the decision to have this vote is not the result of a bipartisan process nor an open or fair process.
Among the moments of Robert Mueller’s House Intelligence committee hearing testimony that were baffling for him, perhaps the most baffling was the task of understanding why it was unusual to even use the word exonerate in his own report on Russian collusion.
Mueller testified before two committees July 25. It was at the later committee that Rep. John Ratcliffe asked Mueller about why he used the word exonerate when it is never used in any judicial proceeding where an individual is charged.
Ratcliffe essentially trapped Mueller, since the director claimed that operated under, was guided by Justice Department procedures and principles. It wasn't.
