    Off the Rails: In Wild Interview, Freshman Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley Pushes for I

    Off the Rails: In Wild Interview, Freshman Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley Pushes for Impeachment

    In a wild interview with Boston Public Radio, freshman Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) lambasted President Donald Trump and called for his immediate impeachment from office–while also ripping the president over the crisis at the U.S. border with Mexico and attacking federal law enforcement agencies.

    Back in September, Pressley said she would “do whatever we can” to impeach Trump and remove him from office, the local public radio outlet noted, and now she feels the same way as she eagerly anticipates Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. But, she added without knowing what’s in Mueller’s forthcoming report, Trump has “lost all moral authority” to lead the United States of America.

    “As I’ve said, impeachment has always been on the table and should be on the table,” Pressley said. “The occupant of the White House … has lost all moral authority and the high ground, and certainly it appears there could be evidence of obstruction of justice and other things, but I can’t substantiate until I see this report.”

    Pressley said too that she views President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency in order to build the border wall as a “fake emergency,” and that she and her colleagues in Congress would do everything they can to stop him.

    “We’re going to leverage every legislative tool and legal avenue available to us to obstruct this declaration of what we consider to be a fake emergency,” Pressley said. “It is a complete overreach and abuse of authority, and I think it’s a diversionary tactic from the real emergency. I sit on financial services and oversight. We held the first hearing on homelessness — that is a national emergency.”

    Pressley, who voted against the spending bill last week that kept government open through the rest of the fiscal year and served as the predicate for Trump’s national emergency declaration, said she did so because she views Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as “rogue” federal law enforcement agencies, echoing a line first popularized by her fellow freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that they want to “abolish ICE.”

    “I have tremendous respect for my colleagues. I’m proud to be a Democrat, and honored to be serving in Congress at a time when the country is at a crossroads,” Pressley said. “I had to put a marker down early that if we were going to increase funding for ICE or the CBP, then I couldn’t support it. … I think the best predictor of the future is the past, and these are agencies that have proven themselves to be rogue.”

    She also, per Boston Public Radio, compared the new freshman class to the “Watergate babies” who were elected in the immediate aftermath of the Watergate scandal that took down President Richard Nixon:

    Partisan gridlock and growing political partisanship might not make for the most welcoming atmosphere in Washington, but Pressley says that she’s excited and optimistic for the freshman class of the 116th Congress. She compared them to the “Watergate Babies,” the freshman class of lawmakers who came into Congress following the Watergate scandal, on a platform of rooting out corruption.

    Pressley’s comments, as well as several actions of her other freshman colleagues, undercut a message of optimism that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struck when she retook the Speaker’s gavel at the beginning of the year:

    Pressley, interestingly, has until now been quieter than her fellow controversial freshman representatives in the boisterous new Democrat majority in the House. Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN), for a variety of different reasons, have dominated the headlines until now.

    But Pressley coming forward with a strong push for impeachment of Trump in this Boston Public Radio interview, and strongly backing the rhetoric of the hard socialist left that ICE and CBP are somehow “rogue” agencies because they enforce federal immigration laws, as well as her backing up the Green New Deal, put her now in the headlines with her fellow new radical Democrats. Pressley wrapped all of this in an argument that Trump is unfit to continue serving as commander-in-chief.

    Tlaib and Omar have garnered headlines in recent weeks for anti-Semitic views they have espoused over the years, while Ocasio-Cortez’s policy views on environmentalism–the Green New Deal she introduced would end the American automotive industry by eliminating the internal combustion engine and would significantly harm airline travel among other radical components–has captivated the Democrat Party, as almost every Democrat running for president in 2020 has endorsed it.

    Pressley, though, has stayed mostly quiet and out of the limelight in her first month or so in the House. Now, though, that changes with this interview, which goes right up against the president. It also comes on the heels of a report from the Boston Herald that Pressley’s husband owed the feds more than $17,000 in back taxes–which he paid this week.

    We have corruption in our own government offices.

    These demented swamp rats have no case to "impeach" the President. They need to be removed from office!

    We have rogue traitors in the House, Senate and our Congress. On the take with lobbyists, making millions, and I will assume the drug cartels or why would they be so hell bent on open borders and destroying this country?

    We have massive voter fraud. We have corrupt Governor's awarding illegal aliens driver's licenses and registering them to vote! That is collusion. When are these Governor's going to be prosecuted for interfering in Federal elections, allowing, encouraging, aiding and abetting foreigners who are here illegally to vote? Awarding them privileges reserved FOR American citizens. Blow this wide open already and stop this. Deem those drivers licenses null and void and remove them from our system, our voting registrations, and remove them from our country.

    These illegal votes, by foreign citizens, rule out our votes and that is fraud and a Felony! Why are Felony charges not filed against these Governor's and Motor Vehicle Departments?

    And these swamp rats scream about Russian collusion? What a bunch of pathetic swamp rats. They register illegal aliens right in front of our eyes and why is that NOT collusion? Where is the DOJ, AG, FBI raids...somebody, anybody to go in like SWAT teams and get ahold of those records!

    We have Governor's who now want to legally allow illegal aliens to vote in our State and Federal elections with no repercussions.

    What next swamp rats? Send Soros voting machines to Mexico, Central America and the Middle East...hell, let the whole world of foreign citizens vote in our elections? Or let's just do away with elections altogether. You all just lie, cheat and steal and have turned our voting process into one big FAT joke and a scam!

    We have Donna Brazil who cheats, we have poll workers who fill out fake mail-in ballots. Why has she been permitted to keep her job? More corruption, that is in every State across this Nation. We have dead people who vote. We have people who have voted multiple times and NOTHING is being done about this.

    We find trunks of cars full of ballots never counted. We have found warehouses and trucks full of ballots.

    We have ballot harvesting!

    Now Oregon wants 16 year olds to vote! No way!

    We have President Obama TELLING illegal aliens to go vote on national TV.

    We have swamp rats who refuse to pass National Voter ID Law and Mandatory Voting Regulations and Procedures. This would put a big monkey wrench in their cheating scams and they know it.

    We have these precincts using Soros voting machines that change our votes from Republican to Democrat down the ticket! More cheating!

    We have cities that REFUSE to purge their voter rolls of dead people, people who moved, illegal aliens.

    We have our own Political Persecution right here in our own country against conservatives. We are stalked, screamed at, suffer from assault and bodily harm. We cannot go into restaurants, we cannot wear a MAGA hat without being assaulted. Our families and children are being attacked. Where is our "asylum"? We seem to give "asylum" out freely to millions of foreigners from all over the world. Why? Shut that damn program down. We have the same problems they do.

    And we have a LOT of nerve to put our nose in other countries businesses about their elections.

    We are shocked about Cuba, Maduro, DR of Congo, Africa, Iran and their election fraud and stomp our feet for "change" and put sanctions on them.

    LOL, what a JOKE all you swamp rats have become and what a disgrace you all are to our country, our citizens, our laws, our peace and our prosperity.

    TERM LIMITS, NO PENSION, PUT THEM ON V.A. CARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY.

    NO LOBBY MONEY! THEY DO NOT WORK FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE...THEY ARE MOBSTERS WHO ARE RUNNING A CRIMINAL OPERATION WITHIN OUR OWN GOVERNMENT WHO HAVE THE DAMN NERVE TO CALL OUT OTHER CORRUPT COUNTRIES AND THEIR CRIMINAL ELECTIONS.

    WHO IS GOING TO CLEAN UP OUR ELECTION MESS IN OUR COUNTRY? WHO IS GOING TO SANCTION PELOSI, SCHUMER, WATTERS, AND THE SWAMP RATS IN OUR OWN CORRUPT GOVERNMENT?
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL
