Bob Inglis, who represented South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District from 1993 to 1999 and again from 2005 to 2011, and who lead the charge to impeach Bill Clinton over a blow job back in the 1990s, is coming for impeachment again ... or at least calling out his own party’s hypocrisy in the matter.
Last week, Bob Inglis took goose-stepping lapdog, Paul Ryan, to task over the GOP’s tribal mentality; he accused Ryan of lying and urged him to take the Russia investigation seriously, after Paul Ryan laughingly suggested the GOP would not call for an impeachment of a Democratic president if that president faced the same charges as _____:
"You know this isn't true. You know that you would be inquiring into impeachment if this were a D."
Inglis fired off his shot at Ryan one day after former FBI Director James Comey testified under oath before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he was fired because of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
After the Comey hearing, Ryan pressed his lips to _____’s ass and defended him in a press conference saying the _____ is “new at this”:
"The president’s new at this. He’s new to government. So he probably wasn't steeped in the long-running protocols that establish the relationships between DOJ, the FBI and White House. He’s just new to this."
To be fair, Bob Inglis isn’t calling for impeachment ... yet ...
"But it is time to pursue the Russia investigation with vigor."
And then he warned Paul Ryan:
"Don't obstruct justice. Put country first."
Nice sentiment, though it won’t likely happen, because for Paul Ryan, and many, er, most, in the GOP, it’s the party that matters, not the people.
