Mt. Susan Collins of Maine had an eruption of sulfurous gases with regards to Trump and his present predicament:
“I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent,” Collins said at a press gaggle in her home state of Maine, according to the Bangor Daily News. “It’s completely inappropriate.”
Big mistake. Yeah. Like filling in the wrong oval on an SAT. Inappropriate. Sorta like admitting to “grabbing women by the pussy.”
And on House impeachment?
Saying that the House likely will pass articles of impeachment on Trump, Collins said she would not comment “on the evidence on both sides coming forth every day.”
“Should the articles of impeachment come to the Senate — and right now I’m going to guess that they will — I will be acting as a juror as I did in the Clinton impeachment trial,” Collins said.
But here is where the gases got especially noxious:
Collins also joined in Republican criticism of House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff's description of the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during the testimony of acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire last week.
Collins said Schiff “misrepresented and misled people about what was in the transcript in the call.”
Here we go again. None of us can read. Only Republicans are literate. Just ask Congressman Kevin McCarthy.
