Representative Steve Scalise (R-La.) called out Democratic lawmakers for they’re “radical” approach to politics.
During an interview on Fox News Thursday, the House Minority Whip gave examples of how some Democratic lawmakers are going to extremes.
“If that’s what they want to be, the party of constant harassment of the president, of his family,” said Scalise. “Of allowing babies who are born to be killed when they’re outside of the womb. That’s what they’ve become, it’s radical.”
The lawmaker also slammed those that have not accepted Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the Robert Mueller report. Pointing to recent statements, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling critics “scaredy-cats,” is evidence that they are desperate to prove collusion.
It was powerful words, and frankly it’s rooted in the fact that for the last two years Adam Schiff has been going around saying he’s got more than circumstantial evidence of collusion. They’re been hanging their hat on the Mueller report, they were convinced there would be indictments and there’d be all this evidence of collusion and there was none.
As IJR reported, many Republicans have called for Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to step down as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee due to his continued comments against the president. However, Scalise said that Democrats like Schiff should accept the report’s conclusion.
“There was no collusion, get over that fact,” Scalise said. “No one should’ve wanted it to happen anyway, but it didn’t happen, and yet for two years they’ve been peddling this lie.”

The lawmaker is not confident they will change, citing the promises made before Obamacare was passed as evidence they will go to extremes to prove their point.
“They will never admit that they were wrong, they’ll just move on to some other baseless accusation,” said Scalise. “Remember the history. These are the people that said if you like what you have you can keep it, millions of people lost their good healthcare.”
As IJR reported, the report is currently under review and will be released to Congress in the coming weeks.
