Steny Hoyer Is Passing The Banner To the American People





https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/4/18/1851289/-This-was-an-impeachment-referral-and-Steny-Hoyer-had-best-figure-that-out-or-step-down?detail=emaildkre

snip of article:

The redacted Mueller report is damning in so many ways, and even a partial brief summary of what we know of Mueller’s conclusions would include the following:


1) Trump obstructed justice, but because of DOJ guidelines on indicting a sitting president he can't be prosecuted while in office.

2) It's Congress's job to provide justice.

3) The extensive and assiduous cover-up had a purpose, and hid something far more serious.

4) The cover-up largely succeeded.

5) There were many more criminal referrals to other jurisdictions, about most of which we as yet know nothing.

6) Given Barr's obstruction and the GOP's full complicity, this is a Constitutional crisis. Right now.

And this is the House Majority “Leader”:

Manu Raju Twitter tweet

Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point. Very frankly, there is an election in 18 months and the American people will make a judgement,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told @DanaBashCNN .

Steny Hoyer is saying hold your powder and throwing the ball to us Voters...……….. WTF. Does he really want the American to make the call? Congress will be neutered and their power will be gone.

1. "Based on what we have seen to date"

So many people (intentionally) ignore this part of his statement. Investigations are continuing both in and outside of Congress, Congress is requesting docs from Deutsche Bank and others, calling in Mueller, etc.

Calling for impeachment to begin at this very moment doesn't make much sense when evidence is still being gathered.

3. Thanks, Twilight.

It's so easy to ignore such nuance.

4. Let them continue to investigate.

We can bring another artcle later. Seems there's more than enough right now to proceed. Apparently Sen Warren thinks so too. And I think there's going to be many more. Time is of the essence. If you know and fail to act, what then?

9. This!

I fell for it, too, until I read exactly what he said.

2. How about, as he's House Majority Leader, he's speaking for (and with) Nancy Pelosi.

5. I thought this was an interesting tweet

 

Several lawmakers said they had no clue why Hoyer went out and said impeachment was off the table. An aide said it was “off message.”

Others said they got no guidance from leadership about messaging the Mueller report even though everyone knew it was coming.

6. "Congress will be neutered and their power will be gone."

But will there still be campaign contributions for another run?

In that case, it might be fine with him.
