Four Republican attorneys general (AGs) appeared this morning in an exclusive interview on Fox & Friends to discuss the “dangerous historical precedent” being set by the Democrats in their politically motivated impeachment of President Trump.
Attorney General Jeff Landry (LA), Attorney General Alan Wilson (SC), Attorney General Leslie Rutledge (AR), and Attorney General Curtis Hill (IN) joined host Brian Kilmeade the day after they filed the first-ever “Friend of the Senate” letter signed by 21 AGs stating that the House Democrats’ Articles of Impeachment legally and factually flawed, inherently destructive of separation of powers, and contrary to the Framer’s vision of impeachment power.
The attorneys general also held a press conference on the lawn of the Capitol on Wednesday afternoon to announce their unprecedented action, inform the public about the Democrats’ political ploy, and urge the Senate to reject the articles in order to preserve the office of the Presidency and the Constitution.
The media wave by the attorneys general did not end with a closely-watched press conference or major TV hit. The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board published an opinion piece calling the letter to the Senate “important” and agreeing with the Republican reasoning.
Once unleashed, the corrupt motives theory will become a temptation whenever a President is disliked and down in the polls. The mere threat of common impeachment will make Presidents much more beholden to Congress.
The unprecedented announcement was covered thoroughly by national press, including Fox News, USA Today, Politico, Washington Post, Washington Examiner, National Review, ABC, Courthouse News Service, Breitbart, the Daily Wire and more.
