Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio, a Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi encourages House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and "his minions" to continue their pursuit of President Trump “as if he’s the most significant threat to our national security instead of our adversaries."
Turner made the statements on “America’s Newsroom” a day after House Democrats participated in a conference call with party leadership to discuss their next steps after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report.
“The Constitution gives very limited authority for Congress to remove a president, impeachment.
They cannot just put political party or their own political wishes above the electorate which viably elected the president of the United States,” Turner said.
In this instance, I think that people need to stop putting political party ahead of the interests of the American public.”
