Impeach

Hage Geingob - Namibia News

Popular Democratic Movement leader McHenry Venaani has revealed that his party will table a motion in parliament to impeach president Hage Geingob. He said this at an impromptu press briefing at the party’s head office in Windhoek yesterday. Venaani expressed concern with Geingob’s recent townhall meeting at Khorixas, where the president reportedly inferred that the reason the two Kavango regions are not developed is because they voted for the PDM (then DTA) in 1989. “That was a democratic right, and it remains the democratic right of Namibians to vote for any political party of their choice. Nothing allows the president to tell people that if they vote for us, they will not receive development,” the PDM leader charged. He said the president’s comments can be interpreted to mean that the reason the two Kavango regions and the Zambezi region are the poorest regions is because they did not vote for the ruling party. “The president is confirming what we have been saying for the last 29 years, which is that PDM members have been suffering over a number of years by not gaining any economic benefits in this country due to the policies of the ruling party,” he stated. Venaani, who called Geingob a ‘constitutional delinquent’, said the president’s comments were a major setback for democracy and freedom of political affiliation. “I was taken aback that our president, who was the chairperson of the Constituent Assembly that drafted the Namibian Constitution, the constitution that guaranteed the rights of individuals, isContinue reading

Donald Trump Campaigning - USA Headlines

Progressive groups are expressing “deep disappointment” over House Democrats’ unwillingness to start impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump and are calling on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to act, according to a letter obtained by The Associated Press. The groups said in a letter being released Tuesday that voters gave Democrats control of the House “because they wanted aggressive oversight of the Trump administration.” They said: “The Trump era will be one that evokes the question — what did you do? We urge you to use your power to lead and to stop asking us to wait.” Pelosi has been reluctant to launch impeachment proceedings , despite growing numbers of Democrats saying it’s time to start a formal inquiry. She says impeachment requires more public support and would detract from the legislative agenda. Instead, House Democrats are conducting dozens of investigations of the Trump administration , announced a series of new hearings and promised a vote next week to hold Attorney General William Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with subpoenas. But the groups — whose members include millions of Americans — say those being hurt by the Trump administration’s policies and behavior don’t have the privilege of waiting. “There are people who feel Trump’s boot on their necks every single day,” said Heidi Hess, co-director at CREDO Action. “We expect moral leadership from you.” The groups signing onto the letter to Pelosi include Indivisible and Democracy for America. “As Speaker ofContinue reading

Nancy Pelosi - Donald Trump - USA Politics Headline Today

Democratic leaders in Congress have argued that impeaching President Donald Trump is a political mistake as the 2020 election nears. Most of the candidates running to succeed him seem to agree, for now. Fewer than one-third of the 23 Democrats vying for the nomination are issuing calls to start the impeachment process, citing evidence in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report they believe shows Trump obstructed justice . Most others, including leading contenders Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, have found a way to hedge or search for middle ground, supporting investigations that could lead to impeachment or saying Trump’s conduct warrants impeachment but stopping short of any call for such a proceeding. The candidates’ reluctance, even as more congressional Democrats start pushing their leaders in the direction, underscores the risky politics of investigating the president for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Impeachment matters deeply to the party’s base but remains unpopular with most Americans. White House hopefuls may win praise from liberal activists by pressing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for an impeachment inquiry, but those who fall short of insisting are unlikely to take heat from early-state primary voters more focused on other issues. “People talk about it and people have opinions about it, but health care is much more salient to them,” Sue Dvorsky, a former head of the Iowa Democratic Party, said in an interview. “I just don’t see Democratic activists here all worked up about impeachment. They trust Pelosi.” The 2020 candidates are facing pressure from the leftContinue reading
