Republicans Create Job Posting, Hinting at Trump Impeachment Expectation
Congressional Republicans will soon be transitioning to life as the minority party. Many understand the reality of the situation. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) says, “They say you will have a lot more time on your hands and will vote ‘no’ a lot more often.”
Republicans will also have to fight more serious matters, especially those involving President Donald Trump. Yesterday, the Republican members of the House Judiciary created a job posting seeking a lawyer experienced in litigation.
The Atlantic’s Natasha Bertrand explains, “House Judiciary is seeking “an attorney with several years of investigative or litigation experience. Litigation experience” is partly in anticipation of the possibility of impeachment proceedings”
As they become the minority party, the GOP realizes that they will often be on the defensive. Just this morning, Nancy Pelosi discussed the possibility of Donald Trump being indicted. The new majority also plans on looking into the President’s tax returns, family separation, Jared Kushner’s dealings and the emoluments clause.
The now-minority congresspeople are prepared for the oncoming attacks. Peter King (R-NY) says, “There are going to be a lot of investigations. We have to be ready to be on defense when the investigations go too far.”
Today, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will become the Republicans minority leader. He was handpicked by Trump, who hopes McCarthy will be able to shield him from the deluge of investigations that are coming.
