[Editorial Comment: This now makes 8 House Reps. who’ve expressed support for impeachment]
InsightNews – In a day that honored a stalwart of the Black Press and saw a liaison of the Trump administration walk out on a breakfast with members of the Black Press, it was the words in a university library that rang the loudest.
The words were those of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas). She was speaking on March 23 to honor Lenora “Doll” Lee, publisher in Memoriam of the Forward Times (Houston), who was just enshrined in the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) Gallery of Distinguished Publishers. But during her impromptu talk on the lower level of Howard University’s Founder’s Library Jackson Lee dropped a bombshell. In talking about the nation’s current president Jackson Lee minced no words.
“This is not a government right now,” said Jackson Lee in front of nearly 50 members of the NNPA. “I’m on the route of impeachment.”
Jackson Lee said there are a litany of reasons that should disqualify President Donald Trump as president including his potential ties to Russia and its interference in November’s election, but she also said America is unsafe under Trump.
