Wilbur Ross says House contempt vote is ‘political theater’


OUR TOP STORY THIS HOUR IS HELD IN CONTEMPT, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES PREPARING FOR A VOTE TODAY ON WHETHER TO HOLD ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR AND COMMERCE SECRETARY WILBUR ROSS IN CRIMINAL CONTEMPT FOR NOT COMPLYING TO FEDERAL SUBPOENAS RELATED TO THEIR EFFORTS TO ADD A CITIZENSHIP QUESTION TO THE 2020 CENSUS. JOINING ME THIS MORNING IS WILBUR ROSS. WHAT IS YOUR EXPECTATION ON THIS CONTEMPT ISSUE?>>OH, THIS IS JUST MORE POLITICAL THEATER. IT DOESN’T REALLY HAVE ANY SUBSTANTIVE BASIS. WE PRODUCED TO THE COMMITTEE OVER 14,000 PAGES OF DOCUMENTS. WHAT’S AT ISSUE HERE IS ABOUT A DOZEN DOCUMENTS, ROUGHLY 15 PAGES, ALL OF WHICH THE COURTS DIDN’T FIND NECESSARY TO MAKE THEIR CONCLUSION. SO THIS IS SILLY. I TESTIFIED MYSELF FOR ALMOST SEVEN HOURS BEFORE THIS VERY COMMITTEE. THREE OF MY FORMER SENIOR STAFF PEOPLE INCLUDING ONE WHO IS NOW ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, TESTIFIED AS WELL. WE ANSWERED THOUSANDS OF QUESTIONS. WE ARE NOT STONEWALLING. BUT WE ARE ALSO NOT YIELDING ON THE VERY, VERY IMPORTANT MATTER OF EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. THESE ARE PRIVILEGED DOCUMENTS. THEY’RE GOING TO REMAIN PRIVILEGED DOCUMENTS AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE FRIGHTENED INTO

    Telling American citizens that are Congress women that were born in the United States to go live in other countries is political theater.

    Democrats deserve pain for their sins. Pelosi needs her butt paddled soundly and publicly! California should burn for sending nothing but trash to Congress. That's all I have to say about that…

    smh. AOC and the squad have become white noise and ineffective. Their only concern is grandstanding for their constituents and increase financial and promotional gains all the while address no issues nor put forth legislation worthy of anyone vote/consideration. Democracy is funny experiment…

    From the The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)  Website“Ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical conduct because of nationality are illegal if they are severe or pervasive and create an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment, interfere with work performance, or negatively affect job opportunities,” 

    “Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person’s foreign accent or comments like, ‘Go back to where you came from,’ whether made by supervisors or co-workers,”

    I've noticed how fast the democrats can get a vote completed when it's about our President Trump. Or illegal immigrants. But when it comes to voting to help American citizens… they are no where to be found!

    What the people who echo Trump's absurd & unfounded "America… Love it or leave it " comment fail to realize that if it wasn't for those who didn't have the guts to redress their grievances in the land of which they inhabited, which was America, we would still be a Colony. These Right Wing Fascists sing hosannas about the Constitution, but fail to realize that they also have a constitution to peacefully redress their grievances. 😠

    Trump, like a true Fascist leader, utilizes the existential fears of those who feel left out, who look for a reason for their maladies. Trump is not normal, he is the most psychotic Chief Executive to occupy the Oval Office in decades (if ever ). I think that those who continue to support this man are misguided & have been pacified with the bread & circus. I don't know if they're familiar with the song "This Land is Your Land".😐

    The dems can unite in voting against Trumps tweet of truth, but they can't vote against antisemitism speech by members of their own party or do the people's business like they have been elected to do. What a bunch of inept hypocrites.

    Fox News is absolutely useless. The question remains, did Wilbur Ross screw up? Or, is this all part of President Trump's
    strategy to expose the Democrats in some plot to undermine the Constitution? Under the 14th Amendment, the President
    has a clear mandate to identify who is and is not a US citizen in the US Census. Wilbur Ross has an iron clad path to getting
    the citizenship question on the census questionnaire. Why didn't he use it? Does Fox ask? What bunch of crap!

    Hopefully the people are really seeing what’s going on:). They are trying anything to get President Trump out of office! And I pray the American people see what the Democratic Party is all about. They are accusing our President of things they are guilty of because they are scared what the President is doing, trying to drain the swamp!

He also was responsible for and got away with GIVING guns to drug smugglers. He was never help responsible. Nor was Obama and Hilary for selling uranium to Russia.
