“Every day that goes by is a day of 'Alice in Wonderland' administration."


A Democratic congressman has proposed one article of impeachment that he hopes will begin the process of removing President Donald Trump from office.

“Donald John Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional government,” read the resolution proposed by Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif.

Sherman said he understood that Trump’s removal would not give the Democrats the White House.

“The purpose of this article is not to deprive the Republicans of their election victory,” said Sherman, noting that if Trump were removed, Vice President Mike Pence would take office. “In fact, from a purely partisan standpoint, it would install someone who would competently pursue a truly regressive progressive.”

However, he said, the nation is being poorly led.

“Every day that goes by is a day of Alice in Wonderland administration,” he said.

The proposal drew a swift rebuke from Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc.

“Frustrated opponents of the president are grasping at straws and factitious rumors to advance their own political agenda rather than the interests of the country,” Sensenbrenner said.

“There is no proof of wrongdoing on the part of the president, which means discussions of impeachment are not only premature, but imprudent and counterproductive,” he said.

Only a few Democrats are actively calling for Trump’s impeachment. Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, last week said he was also drafting articles of impeachment against Trump. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has said for months Trump should be impeached, but has not said she is drafting any articles against him.

Sherman based his articles of impeachment on the claim that Trump tried to stop the FBI’s investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and that he fired FBI Director James Comey for not halting the FBI’s investigation of alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 elections.

Although efforts to impeach Trump can move forward only if a majority of House members support impeachment, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that that blocks impeachment only as long as the House remains in Republican hands.

“Republicans in general — not just Trump — are in a crossroads,” Gingrich said recently. “And if they don’t get their act together, (Minority Leader Nancy) Pelosi is going to become speaker and she’s going to impeach Trump. That’s how big the stakes are.”

“You think the hard left would do anything less?” he added. As speaker, Gingrich led the effort to impeach former President Bill Clinton.

ALERT ALERT

Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
