Texas Progressives Embarrass GOP In Sham Impeachment Against Joe Biden
As the Republicans in Congress continue their clown show, a few Texans bring a spotlight to their shenanigans.
If you missed it today, the Republican-led Congress held its first “Impeachment Hearing” against Joe Biden. You can catch up with it here (warning: it’s six hours long and still going as I write this).
“Shitshow” wouldn’t even begin to describe the chaos in this hearing. To summarize, Republicans don’t have any evidence against Joe Biden. All they talked about was Hunter Biden. The Republican witnesses they called had no first-hand information on Hunter or Joe Biden. One of the witnesses publicly defended a pedophile. Another witness posted extremist content to her LinkedIn account.
The Chair of the Committee, Congressman Comer, lost control repeatedly as both sides shouted over one another when Comer refused to follow House Committee rules.
Democrats presented evidence that this hearing was at the behest of Donald Trump, whom the GOP refuses to break ties with.
I’ve watched a lot of Congressional Committee Hearings over the year (more than I’d care to admit). Today’s hearing was among the most absurd and a waste of taxpayer dollars ever. Republicans cannot govern. They are incompetent, and today proved it.
The best part about today is while this hearing was happening, Democrats strategically placed laptops on the dias to show a countdown of how long until the government shuts down. To that, the Republicans said, “Hunter Biden.”
I wanted to highlight the progressive members from Texas who sit on that committee, Jasmine Crockett and Greg Casar. Today, they brought the fire.
If you were wondering, Lone Star Left will endorse both for reelection next year. The evidence speaks for itself.
While it’s hard to forget how many clowns we have representing Texas in DC (Ted Cruz, Lance Goodin, Brian Babin, Pat Fallon, etc.), it’s always good to remember that we have serious politicians who aren’t playing games on our taxpayer dime. These Congresspeople aren’t only fighting against Maga-extremists. They are working to make the lives of Texans better. We need 20 more just like them.
