Cheney Torches House Dems’ ‘Irresponsible Action’ With Impeachment Pursuit ‘Regardless of the Facts’

House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) had one thing to say to her Democratic colleagues: their calls for President Donald Trump’s impeachment are an “irresponsible action.”

Since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report, Democrats and one Republican Congress member, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), have turned up the dial on impeachment, even though their desire of booting Trump from office may not be in line with most Americans’.

The Republican lawmaker addressed the situation at Tuesday’s weekly press conference.

“They have got a very strong and seems to be growing segment of their caucus who believes that they should move forward regardless of the facts, regardless of the situation,” Cheney said, adding that “many” Democrats have sought impeachment since the 2016 presidential election.

Cheney called the impeachment calls a “shame,” “bad for the nation,” and “bad for the Constitution.”

She continued:

“Fundamentally, I think, is an irresponsible action with respect to what our duties and responsibilities are as members of this body. To continue down this path of these investigations, which really are based on partisan attacks and on the fact that they do not believe Donald Trump should be president. We have too much hugely important work to do, work the American people elected us to do.”

Watch the video below:

While their colleagues pursue impeachment calls, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), are avoiding impeachment discussions for now, as IJR Red reported.

Following Mueller’s first and seemingly last public press conference last week, the two Democratic leaders vowed to continue to “investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy.” However, they didn’t cry out for impeachment, in stark contrast to other Democrats.

Nonetheless, the president doesn’t seem worried by the “dirty” impeachment calls, as he labeled the Russia investigation a “scam,” as IJR Red reported.

The Democrats have ruined this country with their constant blocking everything Trump has tried to accomplish, thank God it hasn’t deterred him, he has done more for this country than any president has done in decades and that is without the help of the radical left wing liberals, they haven’t done one good thing for the American taxpayers and believe we take a back seat to their illegal alien immigrants. Americans could do without them altogether. The witch hunt ended that they were sure would find collusion and or obstructionism and they will not believe Trump did nothing that impeachment… Read more »

The leftists can’t stop now, it’s the only distraction big enough and popular enough with the media to interfere with what’s coming their way via AG Barr. I guess we’ll see if President Trump is the Git-‘r-done man I think he is. He has walked away from some of his endeavors, for his own reasons. Not this time, he enjoys the fight too much. The Democrat/progressive/leftists haven’t figured this out, and keep attacking him! The harder they fight, the more robust his counter. So, given what seems to be the nature of this long-public man is to WIN. Bragadocious as… Read more »

It’s really amazing how dumb you Trump supporters are. Trump contacted Russia 140 times, sells his office, obstructs justice multiple times, lies about it, has a son in law who bought 666 5th Avenue, has 8 associates in jail (1 of whom is a CONVICTED PEDOPHILE), pays multiple women for sex, is friendly with a Prince who cuts people up into pieces, threatens to stop sharing Intelligence with the UK, and you see nothing wrong!
